  • Launch strategy and plan


I served as the creative director, chief editor and primary writer for the third issue of Context Partner's thought leadership publication "The Practice Papers: The Trust Issue." The publication aims to influence the national narrative in audience engagement strategy.

In producing the issue, I led a collaborative team of contributors to fully revamp our approach, beginning with 75 prospect interviews and market insights to inform the issue's editorial theme and content. Our design took a deliberate shift from earlier issues to a more editorial, point-of-view driven feel, while the editorial offered more diverse story formats and voices to fully unpack the topic. VIEW SAMPLE EDITORIAL >>
