Newbie Alert: Annie Hong And Marielle Wakim Join The LA Mag Staff


Keep an eye on our masthead: two ladies have joined the ranks here at Los Angeles. First up is senior art director Annie Hong, who designed this month’s comprehensive guide to Art in LA. Then there’s our intern-turned-associate editor Marielle Wakim, who compiled the web materials for our tango story, “Face the Music.” Here are some observations of the office from their first weeks on staff:


Marielle: The LA mag staff is a particularly cheerful bunch, and I have to say: it’s awesome. Every day is one giant collaboration–a meeting of the minds, if you will–which makes us kind of like a modern-day salon (only cooler).



Annie: I enjoy the view of L.A. that I can see from my cubicle window. I like how all the cars driving below look like little toy cars driving in the streets! As a newbie to the city, it’s really fun to see that sort of endless movement.
