Mr. Horton, 29, joins Ad Age from Primedia's Media Central, where he served as art director of Folio: Magazine, Cableworld and Brill's Content. Mr. Horton also formerly was art director of Powerful Media's Inside Magazine.
"Advertising Age operates at the intersection of business and pop culture. And Andrew has the talents and experience to design a publication that reflects the vibrancy of the advertising, marketing and media industries," said Editor Scott Donaton. "He's a terrific addition to our team and the right art director to help Ad Age rise to the next level."
Earlier in his career, Mr. Horton worked as associate art director at The Wall Street Journal's Weekend Journal and as senior designer at The New York Observer.
"Ad Age is unusual in that it's a business publication that services a community of creative professionals, people who appreciate good design," said Mr. Horton. "Ad Age reaches a hip, savvy audience. The publication should reflect the same sensibility."
