express is New Zealand’s largest LGBTI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) magazine and website. Their goal is to continuously inform, support and strengthen the LGBTI+ community New Zealand wide by reporting on relevant people, places, stories and events.
express has been published since 1992, to date the longest, and now the only LGBTI+ publication in New Zealand.
In 2014, express called me in to design a couple of issues while their designer was on leave. In late 2016, I officially joined the team as the creative director and am loving my role — which includes typography and image layout, designing advertisements for clients, and everything else that is to be expected with magazine creation and publication.
