Beyond HELLO! Designing a successful fashion spin-off

In 2018 HELLO! Fashion Monthly has seen the largest rise in circulation within the UK women's lifestyle market. Marion will talk us through her role as art director, her redesign of the magazine, and how this has redefined the brand as one with wider appeal for both readers and advertisers alike.

She will break down her vision for the magazine, how this fits within the context of sister title HELLO! and some of the unique challenges of designing a brand within a brand. In doing so, she will explain her creative process, where her inspiration and ideas come from, and crucially, how she makes those ideas happen.
