Born in Paris in 1959, Baron studied at one of France’s best art schools, École des Arts Appliqués. At 17, he went to work for his father, who was a graphic artist and the art director of several French newspapers. In 1982, Baron came to New York with the idea of staying just six months. He brought along his portfolio and within four days he had landed a top job at GQ magazine. He was soon recruited as creative director of Barney’s, the famous fashion-forward specialty store in New York.
Condé Nast soon moved Baron to Milan, Italy, to redesign Italian Vogue in 1988 under editor Franca Sozzani. After a year and a half, he returned to New York to become creative director of Interview magazine during its 1990 relaunch. He turned Interview into a showcase for the best in contemporary photography, illustration and typographic design.
In 1992, the late editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis asked Baron to join her dream team to reinvent Harper’s Bazaar. His elegantly innovative new design and creative direction earned the magazine two Ellie’s, the most esteemed award in the magazine world, from the American Society of Magazine Editors.
From 2000—2002, Baron was the editor-in-chief and design director of Arena Homme Plus, the edgy, trend setting London-based men’s fashion magazine.
