For 40 years, working with magazines like Rolling Stone, newspapers like The New York Times, and web sites like Bloomberg.com, Roger Black has been developing ways to communicate content more effectively. His teams have redesigned Reader’s Digest, Esquire, Scientific American, the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post.
In the fall of 2011, Black helped with the launch of The Sporting News, a hybrid iPad app built on the Treesaver, the HTML5 publication platform he helped develop. He’s been working on web sites since 1995, and was involved with some early influential designs, including MSNBC.com and @Home Network. He’s working closely with three new companies providing media design products: Webtype, Ready-Media and Treesaver. A partner in Font Bureau and Danilo Black, both founded in 1989, he works from small studios in New York, Austin and Pass-a-Grille, Florida.
