We’re an award-winning Australian content agency that develops quality branded content and integrated marketing strategies to help build brands, fuel relationships and increase engagement between our clients and their customers.

Working at Hardie Grant Media

Creating great content to fuel strategies that are just right takes a special kind of person. It’s all about balance. Our people are passionate about using content to tell stories, connect people to brands, and improve their lives. But we also love people with interests outside of work, who are curious about the world, and who have a positive attitude to life.

Our people

Our team is experienced, multi-skilled, and coordinated. And we get results.

Visionary people - Management & Strategy

Our leadership team is small but what it lacks in size it makes up for in diversity. This group of experienced management and strategy folk have grown their careers through publishing, marketing communications and travel. Between them, they have many decades of experience gained in Australia and the UK.

Day in and day out they work together to ensure Hardie Grant Media remains at the forefront of the changing media and communications landscape and continually delivers the quality we're known for. 

What's their recipe for success? Empathy, a healthy risk appetite, maintaining the balance, staying curious, and having fun.

People people – Account Management

Our Account Management team spend their days supporting clients and getting to know their business. Whether it's remembering your coffee order, or hand-delivering a proof, they go out of their way to make things happen. 

Between them, they have some highly specialised publishing experience in custom books, deep knowledge of the travel category, plenty of exposure to customer and direct marketing, and a great grasp of the modern ways of digital. 

But, what sets them apart from other client services people is their dedication to the work and building partnerships that can endure.

Ideas people – Content and Design

While we recognise that a great idea can come from anywhere, we have some pretty talented creative types who are especially crafty. Our Sydney and Melbourne teams include editors, art directors, and designers; and no challenge is too great. 

Some recent and notable projects include award-winning work on Flight Centre's Travel ideas magazine, refreshing the visual identity and tone of the Dan Murphy's Buyers Guide, reimagining the design and editorial concept for Jetstar's in-flight magazine, helping St Ives Shopping Village in Sydney to inspire local shoppers to visit and spend, and taking Spirit of Tasmania's yearly direct marketing campaign to new heights. 

Be sure to view our case studies to see their latest feat.

Persuasive people – Commercial

Unlike many other media, creative and content agencies, Hardie Grant Media manages ad sales, editorial, design and strategy together. This really sets us apart because we can take a more holistic 'big picture' approach to delivering end-to-end value for our clients.

Our commercial people are senior leaders with a strong background in custom and owned media and knack for knowing what is a good fit for a brand and what might be best to avoid. They take a 'people-first' approach to media and recognise the importance of relevance and context in a customer's journey. Supported by a deep pool of talented sales superstars in Sydney and Melbourne, they know how to kick goals.

In today's ever-evolving media environment, top of mind for them is technology, data and delivering personalisation.

Our story

After a decade working in the UK publishing industry, Fiona Hardie and Sandy Grant returned to Australia and imagined how they could meet the custom publishing demands of the local market. In 1998, Hardie Grant Media (known then as Hardie Grant Magazines) was born. 

While our custom magazine roots taught us the power of perfect words blended with beautiful design, our work now comes to life everywhere! You’re likely to consume our ideas as websites, iPad magazines, content-rich apps, emails, social media, books and e-books, guidebooks, maps and more. 

Today we are Australia’s largest independent content and custom publishing agency.

Content is powerful. Contact us to find out more.
