    “Here are the Entertainment Weekly covers of the magazine’s first design director, Michael Grossman (and, he hastens to add, art director Mark Michaelson) from the years 1990–94. The photography directors for most of these covers were Mary Dunn and Doris Brautigan.” — Robert Newman, SPD Grids

    “When EW debuted in 1990, Bureau Grotesque (now Bureau Grot) was part of the original cast, including the logo (uncapitalized until 1992). Several styles in the family were originally custom designs specifically for the magazine. This distinctive sans serif helped define EW’s look for more than a decade, through several design updates.” — Font Bureau

    “Early issues of Entertainment Weekly featured a tilted logo and a strip of secondary headlines and images on the left-hand side. The logo would change a number of times in the next few years.” — Robert Newman, SPD Grids

    By the middle of EW's first year, the logo righted itself and the side panel disappeared. A drop shadow was added to the logo that remained in some form for many years.” — Robert Newman, SPD Grids

    “By the time the magazine celebrated its third birthday, the first letter of the logo had been upper-cased, and the type had been compressed and made taller. Covers were often black and white with simple, boldly elegant headlines and minimal color.” — Robert Newman, SPD Grids
