Our History

Amara Projansky

Amara Projansky

CEO

When Jason suggested we start a New Age magazine, I let the idea settle in me for a minute. I liked magazines, and I liked reading, and I liked the area, and I even liked thoughtful, New Age kind of stuff. But I realized it was going to need more content than that.

I told him to count me in—but we should include arts and culture as well as the spiritual. We focused the magazine on helping people enjoy the area as much as we did.

Meanwhile, I wanted it to look really good. I had studied art, but I wasn’t confident or schooled in graphic design, so a few choice suggestions along the way helped me learn, and over successive issues I found the look and feel of the magazine. 

Stanley Kanney suggested we use the cover to showcase real art—a signature feature of Chronogram to this day. Dorothy Hamburg’s eye for type was contagious and helped me find a format that was easily readable and a pleasure to peruse from the beginning. A few great designers (thank you, Anthony Kosner) gave me encouragement that what I was doing worked, despite my doubts. 

My five-year stint as art director for Chronogram—only one of the many hats I wore when we first began—ended, but it was the beginning of a surprise love affair with graphic design—for both me and the magazine. My shoes have been over-filled by our subsequent art directors, Molly Rubin, Carla Rozman, and David Perry, and I get a thrill seeing the beautiful development of the magazine. 

What started out being referred to as “that little thing” grew and grew. Now you can’t miss it, (unless you forget to pick one up in the first week of the month). It just gets better and better.
