Do you know about Sesame Magazine? Sesame is an online magazine published by the super talented, incredibly driven Nadia Barbaro, who I happened to go to uni with many moons ago! By day, Nadia works as a wardrobe stylist in TV-land…. but in her own time Nadia co-ordinates all the content for Sesame Magazine, styling many of the photo shoots herself, not to mention managing all the other behind the scenes stuff like pulling in models, photographers, contributors etc. It’s a HUGE task and one I can totally relate to! Great work Nadia!

The current issue of Sesame was launched only last week – it’s full of glorious eye candy and lots of local talent… including contributions from previous Design Files interviewees Beci Orpin and photographer Louisa Bailey. It’s fantastically curated I have to say – the perfect mix of slick fashion shots, cutsie illustration, interviews, interactive snippets (you get to ‘colour in’ a Beci Orpin drawing!), and even a splash of carefully edited video and animated content!

Beci Orpin’s ‘Colour Me’ illustration! Fun!

And, oh yeah, there’s an interiew with me in there too! Ha ha. Go to the ‘blogs we love’ section to check it out!
