Amanda Linnell, editor
What do you do at Viva?
First of all no day is the same – and that’s what I love. It’s about taking creative ideas – be it a photo shoot, a story idea, a cover design, an event – and pushing the boundaries to make it stand out from the crowd.

Zoe Walker, associate editor
What do you do at Viva?
I work closely with and help Amanda on all things Viva – planning content, strategising, confirming page layouts, managing the team… cracking the whip and making sure deadlines are being met! I write, when I can. I send a lot of emails.

Jessica Beresford, digital producer
What do you do at Viva?
I have the delightful duty of running Viva.co.nz, which means writing, editing and publishing stories, coming up with ideas, making sure there’s fresh and interesting content each morning and monitoring traffic. I also look after The Dish and write profiles and features for the weekly print edition.

Rosie Kelway, writer
What do you do at Viva?
I am writer and my job is to always be in on the hunt for cool new things to write about for print, social media and Viva.co.nz. Mostly, I write about fashion but my job involves a bit of everything, including curating shopping galleries, styling products, attending range viewings and events and more.

Danielle Clausen, editorial assistant
What do you do at Viva?
I’m the editorial assistant, which means I could be doing anything from picking up the mail to styling an online shoot. Day-to-day I write content for print and online, put together spreadsheets, pester the mailroom team, head out to source and return items, assist on shoots and compile product pages. I love that I get to work across a wide range of things and there’s always something new around the corner.
