Chief Gatherer: Jessica Whiting
Introducing Jessica Whiting, our Creative Director + Editor in Chief.
Gather Magazine has been a dream, tucked away till now – the gin to Jessica’s tonic. Collecting skills as a successful lifestyle blogger, art director, graphic designer and photographer, Jessica will unravel her talents and love for the region – directly to a magazine of spirit and depth.
As a creative, Jessica nudges boundaries to champion her clients. Since moving north, she’s been face to face with many clever souls and Gather is a chance to share their story. The magazine will unveil those in our community achieving big. Over her polite obsession for perfect design, image-rich stories will unfold of humble people doing inspiring things, those who may not jump on a soap box or self-promote easily, but deserve to be applauded.
“I’m so excited to be producing this magazine, the ability to have sole creative freedom over something that is so close to me as a designer, is an amazing opportunity” she says. “The support has been absolutely over whelming, and I am so lucky to have such a dedicated team behind me that see my vision”.
Jessica was the sole pencil behind well-known lifestyle blog ‘Foxesblog’ and author/owner of Auckland Fair for eight years and still runs her design studio, Oh Gosh. She will now bring her widespread skills to direct this exciting new project.
