Niche Media, publishers of AustralianDesignReview.com, are proud to announce the appointment of Maitiú Ward, managing editor of Architectural Review Australia, to the position of associate publisher.
In partnership with group advertising manager Vivienne Forbes, Mat will be overseeing the growth and development of Niche Medias Architectural Division, with direction over its four titles AustralianDesignReview.com, Architectural Review Australia, (Inside) Interior Design Review and Facility Management. Vivienne and Mat will also be working together in expanding the reach and impact of the Architectural Divisions events program, including its interior awards program, [“IDEA”:http://www.idea-awards.com.au/], and the architectural ideas competition, [“Proposition”:http://www.proposition.com.au/].
Mat first joined the company in 2006 as assistant editor to Andrew Mackenzie on Architectural Review Australia, advancing to the role of editor on that title two-and-a-half years ago. In keeping with the legacy of his predecessors, during his time at the helm Mat has continued to champion Architectural Review Australias reputation as the premier journal for independent architectural criticism in Australia.
In addition to this, Mat has also overseen the extension of Niche Medias Architectural Division into the digital realm with AustralianDesignReview.com, as that titles founding editor. Much like its companions in print, AustralianDesignReview.com has rapidly established itself as the leading online resource for authoritative and considered Australian design criticism, as well as news and opinion on the built environment.
Whole-heartedly dedicated to strengthening and celebrating Australias contribution to architecture and design, as associate publisher Mat will continue to build on the Architectural Divisions reputation for innovative, high calibre titles in both print and digital formats, and their enrichment of the Australian design publishing landscape.
