About me

Hailing from Melbourne, Brendan is back in London (again), heading up all things content and community for The Dots. In a previous life, he was the managing editor of Australian design magazine desktop, and was responsible for the vision behind and managing of its successful relaunch, which was heralded by the Australian design industry for its fresh look and new editorial approach. He then moved to the digital editor role at Dumbo Feather magazine, strategising and implementing its digital offering – taking the Dumbo message and brand to a global audience.  Most recently, Brendan has finished up a four year stint as the brand + marketing manager for frankie press, a multi-award-winning media / publishing company with a global audience, at the forefront of the Australian media landscape. At frankie press, he looked after all brand and marketing for frankie magazine (Australia’s number one women’s fashion + lifestyle magazine), men’s magazine Smith Journal, an awards program (the frankie Good Stuff awards), online store, merchandise, and brand extensions. With a strong focus on digital, he also worked across all of frankie press’ digital platforms, strategising and rolling out campaigns throughout the brands’ websites, apps, e-commerce and social media platforms. Brendan has a keen passion for fascinating design and extraordinary people. When not writing about himself in the third person, he likes to think he's a creative thinker, with a strategic mind, and keen eye for detail.
