New headquarters of the Groupe-6 architecture firm in Grenoble


Cosy City Magazine


The Collaboration

In 2011-2012, I worked as an editorial contributor to Cosy City magazine, a print publication of the Free Presse group based in Le Bourget du Lac (Savoie).

Subject Matter

Cosy City covers trends in design, decoration, architecture, arts, fashion, and a few other lifestyle subjects in cities of the French Alps, including Grenoble, Chambéry, Aix-les-Bains, Annecy, and the Leman area. Although a freely distributed publication, Cosy City follows right in the footsteps of Cosy Mountain, another magazine in the group's portfolio, and shares the same high quality presentation.

My Work

My contribution included finding, pitching and researching stories, carrying out interviews, writing and cutting articles to agreed upon length, sourcing supporting material. The subjects I worked on greatly varied in length, ranging from short news to focus articles and multipage featured stories.
