Lauren Steadman joins BNC Publishing

BNC Publishing’s new monthly title, Design Middle East has appointed Lauren Steadman to the role of Editor. With over 5 years of experience in journalism in the region, Lauren was previously Editor at Guardian Media Group, UK, before she moved to the Middle East to work with Switch Global in Qatar and UAE as well as ITP Publishing Group in Dubai. In her new role, Lauren will oversee and contribute to all editorial content for the design title.

“I’m a real design obsessive and I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into the role,” says Lauren. “My parents run an architectural practice, so the world of interiors is one I’m already quite familiar with.”
