Deputy Editor at The Motor Report
Online Media | Melbourne Area, Australia, AU
Motoring journalist, graphic designer.
These days, my life revolves around the automotive world. I am presently Deputy Editor with The Motor Report, one of Australia's premier resources for motoring news and reviews.
I have also worked as a professional graphic designer for nearly ten years.
As a designer, my work has featured in publications such as automotive enthusiast magazine Japanese Nostalgic Car (circulation: 15,000+), children's entertainment magazine Mania, automotive racing magazine Circuit Club, and the Salvation Army's KidZone. I also developed the identity for new Australian music magazine, HEAVY.
As Art Director for Japanese Nostalgic Car, I was responsible for creating the visual identity for the magazine's first issue. This is an American publication, which I worked on from my office in Melbourne, Australia.
I have maintained a special focus on corporate identity, helping both small and large businesses find the ideal image to give them the best possible impact and position in their industries.
In 2008, I took on the role of Art Director for The Motor Report, one of Australia's leading automotive news outlets, with over 7000 unique visitors every day.
My initial role with TMR focused largely on online production, including graphic design and article preparation/publishing. I also worked as a writer with the company, reporting on industry news and reviewing new vehicles.
My role at TMR grew to include News Editor, making me responsible not only for design and production, but also management of the website's news contributors and the daily news flow.
In 2013, I became Deputy Editor with TMR, working directly beneath Managing Editor, Tim O'Brien.
Update: January 2013: The Motor Report now receives over 45,000 unique visitors daily. If you would like to discuss advertising or other opportunities, please feel free to contact me, or visit the contact page on http://themotorreport.com.au.
