Neil Budde, who led the charge in creating and sustaining the Wall Street Journal Online, leaves his job as publisher to follow other pursuits. "I wanted to not only get the Online Journal up and running, but I wanted to get it to a point where it was showing financial strength," Budde says, noting that Dow Jones' Consumer Electronic Publishing unit reached a positive cash flow position in the third quarter of 2002. Budde, 46, has always worked on "electronic stuff" since joining Dow Jones & Co. in 1987. Rich Jaroslovsky, the first managing editor of the Online Journal, praises Budde's "vision and perseverance" and says his contribution "literally can't be measured."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
