Just in time for Christmas, the Village Voice has canned art director Chris Sauvé. In August, the paper parted ways with its longtime art director Ted Keller, whose position was handled for a time by Village Voice Media's design chief, Michael Shavalier. VVM papers have taken shots in the press for all looking alike—they really don't. But the Voice's art department has struggled in the last year to handle budget cuts, according to a source, as well as design directives from Phoenix-based VVM executives. According to a source, staffers under editor David Blum, who was fired in March, were frustrated by the impression that cover stories were chosen based on how well they could be illustrated. Voice editor Tony Ortega declined to comment on the specifics surrounding Sauvé's dismissal.
