Home » Journal » Leaving Indesign.

This is my last week working at Indesign.

I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such inspiring, creative and talented people.


It has been a pleasure going to work every day.


From a personal perspective, the last couple of years have been emotionally turbulent, however working at Indesign has been a constant. Honestly, at times it was the thing that kept me ‘going’. Whilst other parts of my life were completely chaotic, Indesign was the one thing that remained stable.


You are probably wondering; “why the hell are you leaving then?”


My intuition tells me it is time for me to take the next step onward and upward. Take on a new challenge. Start a new chapter. Push myself. Test my limit. Move beyond my comfort zone.


I will miss the Surry Hills community – Arthur Street Kitchen, Bourke Street Bakery, Gnome, Organix (best banana smoothies).


I will miss being surrounded with beautifully-produced high quality magazines.


I will miss the crazy dance parties on Friday nights (when ‘Brown Sugar’ aka my alter ego emerges…)



But, most of all I will miss the belly-laughs and ridiculous banter with my colleagues, who I now consider to be my friends (hopefully life-long).


Admittedly, I am a little nervous of what lies ahead….Am I good enough for my new role?  Will my new colleagues like me?  Just the usual questioning with a touch of self-doubt. I guess the important thing is that I am determined and motivated to take on this new role!


I view my life as a train. I make various stops –  people jump on and stay on for the ride, other’s disembark when they have taught me certain lessons. I also get off at certain stops, take a walk around and learn new things…I then get back on the train…



I am ready for my next stop.


Indesign has exposed me to so many inspiring designers, architects and creative individuals.


My friends at Indesign have taught me the importance of living a wholesome and meaningful life.


Working at a publishing company has been an amazing experience – one which I will always remember with only fond memories.


To celebrate my love for magazines (especially Habitus, Indesign and DQ)…here is a round up of some innovative ways to display magazines.
