Khoi going to the Times

Khoi going to the Times: Designer Khoi Vinh is leaving the firm he co-founded to become the design director for NYTimes.com.

Quote from Khoi:

In a few weeks, I’ll be starting work at The New York Times as the Design Director for NYTimes.com. I’ll be heading up their staff of Web designers, helping to bring new improvements and features to the Gray Lady’s formidable online presence, and also working to define the role that design will play in the paper’s increasingly digital future.

I met Khoi in Austin last March at SxSW and point to his blog often.

37Signals’ Matt Linderman (with a wink) suggests it was Khoi’s work on the redesign of another newspaper of record, The Onion, that convinced the Times that Khoi was their man.

Congratulations to Khoi and the NYTimes.com
