creative direction + design

BRANDING + quarterly 120 page print and digital publication

I continue to have the opportunity to work with Amanda, editor of Pacific Pencil, to create Stella, a quarterly lifestyle magazine.

By shaking up the status quo, the brand provides an engaging platform to support a tribe of independent thought leaders, game changers, rule breakers and style makers. 

Through print, online, digital and social media, Stella shares stories, interviews, poetry, photography, craft and practical tips aim to inspire change and celebrate indigenous people, encouraging its readers to be open minded, dream big and live a life with intention and purpose.

Issue 15 saw the relaunch of the magazine as a quarterly publication, combined with a digital version for those that prefer to read on the go.

“Jodi has worked with us as our creative director on eight editions of Stella magazine and continues to deliver beyond expectations, delivering 120 pages each edition, for print and our digital app.

She has also developed advertisements for our clients and not only does she work quickly and to brief, she is professional, ethical and able to work across cultures, fully understanding our brand, audience and what we are trying to achieve. She brings a great eye to the project and is always happy to help us challenge our audience to think bigger.”
