Conde Nast continues its makeover to adapt to the ever changing digital media landscape. Like Time Inc, the company is making the changes publication by publication. Conde Nast’s latest changes are happening with Self magazine. The magazine will publish its last regular scheduled print edition with the February 2017 issue. Going forward Self will only produce special print editions focused on health and wellness. This decision effectively moves Self to an all digital brand, with sporadic special print editions.
