Brendan McKnight is the digital editor of Dumbo Feather.
Brendan has just launched into a new digital editor role at Dumbo Feather, strategising and implementing its digital offering – taking the Dumbo message and brand to a global audience. As the former editor of desktop magazine, Brendan was responsible for the vision behind and managing of the magazine’s successful relaunch in March 2011, which was heralded by the industry for its fresh look and new editorial approach – effectively turning the magazine around and driving the increase of subscriptions and newsstand sales.
Brendan has worked as a trends researcher in London, freelanced for The Cool Hunter, and written for a bunch of publications/brands including Dazed, Vanity Fair, Marketing magazine, The Design Files and (inside) Interior Design Review. He has been interviewed on Broadsheet, The Thousands, Design Montage and ABC Radio and has spoken at a variety of events and conferences including Look Hear, Cut.Slice.Fold, Junior and AGDA Question Time.
With a keen passion for fascinating design and extraordinary people, Brendan is interested in both digital and analogue publishing (and the crossovers between the two) and can often be found buried under stacks of magazines, snow globes and cereal boxes.
