1 Granary

I have written for 1 Granary (a magazine supporting emerging designers and creatives) since early 2019, acting as junior editor from October 2019 to April 2020. As well as interviewing creatives and writing features during that time, I commissioned and edited all digital content, contributed social media content, and wrote press releases for designers affiliated with the 1 Granary showroom. For the sixth print issue, I interviewed Christopher Kane, Caroline Hu, Goom Heo, Pauline de Blonay, Stephanie Frig, Sergiy Grechyshkin and Eftychia.
