InsideOut welcomes new Editor

Interiors and design title, InsideOut, part of GN Media, has appointed Mairead Walsh to the role of Editor. Previously Travel Editor for the Contract Publishing Division at GN Media, Mairead took on the role of Associate Editor for InsideOut six months ago, before being promoted to Editor. In her new role, she will oversee all editorial content for the title as well as lead and grow the InsideOut brand.

“For the past 12 years, InsideOut magazine has been one of GN Media’s leading print tites,” says Katie Heskett, Publisher, GN Media. “With exciting developments in digital and events – including this year’s InsideOut Reader Awards and Home of the Year campaign, we are thrilled to have Mairead leading the future of the brand into new arenas and audiences.”

Mairead adds, “Design and interiors is a burgeoning industry in the UAE and this is a very exciting time to lead the magazine. I hope to bring more engaging, innovative and dynamic design content to our audience through a range of platforms and showcase industry talent and experts to inspire interior enthusiasts.”


Gulf Life gets a makeover

Gulf Life, the inflight magazine for Bahrain’s national carrier Gulf Air, has received a new look. The redesign is the culmination of a comprehensive review of the magazine’s content, style and tone to better service its audience – whether 35,000 feet in the air, or in an airport lounge.

In addition to an updated logo and cover, the August 2015 issue of Gulf Life is also the first issue to be available as a digital edition via the issuu platform, which readers globally can download free of charge on any mobile device, tablet or desktop.

“We wanted something that reflected the expanding network of Gulf Air and its well-travelled passengers,” says Mairead Walsh, Editor, Gulf Life. “The new look is energetic and aspirational. We expect our new online presence will only increase our readership and awareness of the Gulf Air network.”

Edward Marr, Head of New Product Development and Business Development, GN Publishing, adds “We are immensely proud of the great standards Mairead and her team achieve each month for Gulf Life. As with all our products, nothing delights our teams more than producing engaging content that excites our readers, whilst clearly communicating our clients’ message.”
