A Fresh Look for Kiplinger Personal Finance

The magazine has undergone its first total redesign in several years — but our mission of providing sound financial advice hasn’t changed.

In its September 2023 issue, Kiplinger Personal Finance magazine debuted a new look from cover to cover. We wanted to create an elevated feel that reflects the sensibilities of both our readers and the content within. Dean Usher, head of design for a collection of lifestyle and photography magazines published by our parent company, Future, spearheaded the redesign, and Kiplinger art director Will Tims and art editor Steve Mumby carried the vision through to each page. 

On our refreshed cover, illustrator Lisa Sheehan created compelling art to capture the lead feature for September, on investing in the artificial-intelligence boom. And the cover features a subtle modification to the beginning of our title: We’ve switched from the possessive Kiplinger’s to simply Kiplinger, so you can refer to us as Kiplinger Personal Finance from here on out. The publication launched in 1947 as the Kiplinger Magazine, so the adjustment moves us a little closer to our roots.
