After over 10 years in business, we’ve come to the conclusion that one of the best things about our magazines is the people behind them. Here’s the group of people who make the magazine magic happen.
“I love the buzz. No two days are the same at DC Publishing. The best thing about my job is the team, and seeing how passionate everyone is about our magazines. I enjoy seeing things grow and change in the industry, and coming up with new ideas to take our publications to the next level.”
After working in publishing for many years, Denise launched DC Publishing back in 2007 with one magazine, Primary Life. She’s an award-nominated publisher, noted as ‘one to watch’ at the PPA Scotland Scottish Magazine Awards – and she’s very hands-on with everything in the business.
Editorial and production
“In a world of “fake news”, the written word has more power than ever and creating meaningful magazines is a huge responsibility – but an enjoyable one! The best part of putting together a magazine is seeing other people read it when it’s finished.”
Laura cut her teeth editing luxury lifestyle, culture and fashion magazines in the Middle East, travelling around the world writing features and interviewing VIPs before returning to Scotland. She joined DC Publishing in 2018 and is excited to be part of the team – and get stuck in.
“It is fantastic to work with DC Publishing. Not only are all the folks in the office really friendly but every day is different. There is always something interesting to get your teeth stuck into and seeing magazines come to life each issue means there is never a dull moment!”
Lorne graduated from university with a degree in journalism and an award for Best Feature Article for her freelance work to boot. After spending some time working with charities and behind the scenes in magazine production, she’s thrilled to be getting back into the fast-paced world of journalism.
“It’s great to be part of an ever-growing company that produces fantastic magazines, really value their team and are passionate about what they do.”
Lucy has over 11 years’ worth of experience in design, creating everything from magazines to adverts to wedding stationery. Her favourite part of the job is seeing the magazines when they come back from the printers.
“I have learned so much since I started at DC Publishing in 2016. I love seeing how magazines are made, and getting to speak to people working in lots of different industries every day.”
Lisa joined DC Publishing fresh out of school as an apprentice administration assistant, and soon got promoted to production assistant, chasing advertising copy and dealing with general administrative tasks. She completed her apprenticeship in under a year, and is now a permanent fixture in the office.
“Every day presents new and interesting challenges at DC Publishing and I really thrive on that. I love being surrounded by people who are really passionate about their job too – it’s a great team.”
Marian is the longest-serving member of staff at DC Publishing, having worked on all of the group’s magazines at one time or another over the last seven years. A marketing graduate, Marian is also the office’s social coordinator – our Christmas parties are legendary thanks to her organisational skills.
