It is with enormous pleasure, and giddy excitement, that I am able to introduce you to a group of brilliantly talented women that I have been recently humbled to meet, and to welcome to the new Thelma Magazine team!
I’m so very delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate, day-dream and create the newest version of Thelma, with:
Diana is a whiz with words. She’s just completed her degree, and has been using traditional journalism practices and writing skills, combined with interactive elements of digital media to find her own voice on line. From tweeting, to contributing to various online publications, blogging, writing music reviews, and coming along to Eleven & Twelve events with me, Diana proved herself to be the right person to help whip Thelma into shape in 2013.
Diana is the new Assistant Editor of Thelma Magazine. She’ll be helping to shape and influence the direction of the magazine by producing her own content, as well as sourcing and liaising with contributors, editing content, helping with the magazine’s business strategy, and loads of other stuff.
Diana is also totally available for copywriting and content strategy work with Eleven & Twelve. Get in touch with her – email@example.com !
Amandine is a brilliant illustrator and designer from France. With a passion for magazine design, Amandine has been working as a freelance illustrator for a number of magazines and book publishers. She dreams of one day starting her own children’s magazine.
Within minutes of browsing Amandine’s work, you’ll notice her witty humour and observations about the world – not to mention her amazing sketches, illustrations, and graphic design skills.
Amandine will be working on Thelma, bringing her unique design style and imagery to the project.
Amandine also works as a freelance artist and designer in Melbourne and Internationally. Want some amazing illustrations to enhance you project’s visual identity? Give Amandine a shout – firstname.lastname@example.org
Lauren is from Christchurch, NZ, but now lives in the heart of Fitzroy where she’s able to immerse herself in Melbourne’s creative scene.
Lauren has a passion for typography and lettering, as well as symbolic graphic design. Her ability to take elements of an idea or event, and to translate them into simple yet striking and meaningful graphic design, is incredible.
Not to mention the fact that she has a keen skill for creating her or beautiful lettering and layouts.
Lauren also has loads of ideas for how to make the content of Thelma Magazine special and meaningful, and for how we can incorporate the work of other young emerging designers and content creators into our project.
Lauren will be working on the design, layout, and user experience of Thelma Magazine, in collaboration with Amandine, Diana, and myself.
And just like Amandine, Diana, and myself, Lauren is available for freelance work. She does everything from graphic and web design, to hand lettering and chalk sign-writing. Get in touch with Lauren by emailing her at email@example.com!
And of course, there’s me -
Resident crazy-person, day-dreamer, plotter and schemer, and Founder/Editor of Thelma Magazine and Director at Eleven & Twelve.
I’m continually humbled and in awe of the amazing talented creatives with big ideas for how to innovate, that I keep seeming to meet and have opportunities work work with and learn from.
Enough about me – all you need to know, is that I’m suuuuuuuper happy to have the opportunity to welcome Diana, Amandine, and Lauren to the Eleven & Twelve family and to have them on board to influence the direction of Thelma Magazine.
I’m going to keep spruiking the work of these incredibly talented people. Because I’m so excited about their skills and ideas (and I have grand day-dreams of someone wanting to engage the four of us to overhaul a big creative campaign that involves design, illustration, video, writing, and web experiences, so that I get to work with them all more. Seriously though – you need a creative dream team to make something amazing for you? Hola at us).
I simply can not wait to re-launch Thelma Magazine with this team of wonderful people.
