    I was employed by Magnesium Media to Design/create a look for a new Art magazine they wanted to publish. The magazine was launched in 2014, and was assigned its own Art director. In early 2015, after leaving the company to work from home, I undertook the art Direction of Art Edit.

  • The Weekend Australian Magazine
    Creative and Art director
    2000 - 2011

    Employer: News Limited
    Editors: Candida Baker; Helen Anderson; Bruce Guthrie; Helen Trinca; Steve Waterson

    A glossy weekly current affairs colour magazine which was inserted in the Weekend Australian Newspaper.

    Absolutely loved this job. Where else can you find a magazine that allowed you to photograph Prime Ministers, great sporting icons, great entertainment icons and also just ordinary australians who found greatness thru extraodinary deeds. The Magazine covered anything worth talking about, events that changed the world from triumphs to disasters. It also introduced ideas, causes, events and people we SHOULD be talking about.

    But after 550 or so issues and covers, I needed a break. 11 years is a long haul to be Art director of a weekly magazine. But I remember this magazine with great pride and fondness.

  • Wish Magazine

    I was the launch creative of Wish and the magazine was under my stewardship until a year of so later when I handed the reins to its own Art director.

  • Sydney Morning Herald
    Senior Designer
    1997 - 2000

    This was a period when Newspapers started to introduce colour to their pages. In turn this saw the growth of colour inserted supplements. Wanting a more magazine feel to their supplements, the paper turned to designers with magazine experience, and many designers like myself saw a new opportunity to break away from the design of magazines.
    I ultimately worked on and redesigned sections such as Spectrum, Metro, and other colour advertising supplements that went into the SMH or their Weekend addition.

About Ivan

I'm passionate about design, and feel fortunate to have worked in an environment that doesn't feel like work to me. I am especially passionate about magazines, and feel there will always be a place for this medium, although we are constantly told otherwise. ( I recently just returned from tokyo, and seems no-one has bothered to tell the japanese, print is on life support). I love the whole process from story outline to finish print. The stories, the ideas, the typography, photography, the illustrations and the melding of all these ideas, and the challenges involved to enhance and intrigue a reader into investing their time into your magazine or article. I love how at the end of a days work, there is always the small satisfaction of looking at a layout you have just completed and feel a sense of pride. And...there is nothing more satisfying than having your latest issue in your hands, hot off the press. A vindication of your months work.
