    I joined the BRICKS team in September 2019 as Editorial Assistant to Tori West, and became Digital Editor in November. In January, I took on the role of redesigning and relaunching our website into a multi-dimensional online platform. In this role, I have overseen the running of the online platform, including writing, editing and commissioning all content, managing brand partnerships and directing editorial shoots for our digital covers. During my time as editor, I have profiled Florence Given for our first BRICKS Voices digital cover, chatted to Amyl & The Sniffers for the cover of BRICKS Issue #7, and worked on collaborative projects with clients including Dr Martens, Fred Perry, TOMS and PUMA.
