The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie
In 2010 I was promoted to Art Director of Jamie Durie’s Outdoor Room magazine which was published
within the Home Beautiful offices. In this role I was designing page layouts and developing the look of the magazine
according to Jamie’s brand. As Art Director one of my most important roles was designing the cover and
producing the cover shot with a photographer and stylist.
Commissioning and directing outdoor food shoots was a new and exciting experience for me here.

June 2013 I returned from my second maternity leave to a part time role in the art department developing brand extension projects for the magazine with Coles, Channel 7 (House Rules) and the back end of their new app HomeLove.
This was an exciting time as I really felt the change in publishing connecting with digital platforms and television.
This work period part-time also. 

In my time at Pacific Magazines working in editorial meant working with
marketing, advertising and corporate departments.
