A writer, editor and content strategist with a background in magazines and a deep obsession with cities, food and design. Simon loves making things that connect with people and tell a story, whether it’s a piece of editorial, a website or an event, and have worked with major international magazines, brands and agencies across print, digital and events.
Up until recently, Simon Farrell-Green was the editor of HOME, New Zealand’s oldest architecture magazine.
Launching the new startup architectural magazine Here, Simons’ new publication is fiercely dedicated to local New Zealand architecture, specifically its houses, but it’s also about books and art and community and independent business and beautifully designed things you might want to have in your house.
It’s about small being beautiful, and things that last and it’s about being thoughtful and careful rather than wasteful and showy. It’s about design rather than budget, whether that’s a lot or a little. It’s about here – New Zealand, this odd little place we live in and always, always underestimate.
