                             Gordon was commissioned, in 1985, to design and produce a new publication for Dick Smith
ConTaCT DeTailS:             - the Australian Geographic Journal. The success of this title was unprecedented and it launched
                             a retail and publishing empire of which Tony became Creative Director. He was responsible

42 Chisholm ave              brochures, up until 2002. He was part of the management consortium that bought the company

                             the Journal. The magazine and books subsequently won many Gold Medals at the National Print

                             Awards and other industry Awards for Excellence. The print quality of the magazine, calendars and
                             diaries, became the industry benchmark.
                                  • was the first to embrace Desktop Publishing by introducing Apple computers to the AG
                             design studio in 1989, and the first in Australia to produce a magazine entirely by electronic means.
                                  • pioneered the use of stochastic printing in Australia, working closely with printer (Offset
                             Alpine) and graphics supplier (Agfa) to develop this technology – which is now used by many of
                             Australia’s top printers.

                             After leaving Australian Geographic in 2002, Tony redesigned and packaged the bi-monthly
                             magazine Mortgage Brief for the Mortgage Industry Association of Australia – increasing
                             circulation from 6,000 to 11,000 copies in the first twelve months and more than doubling the
                             advertising content.

                             Currently, Tony Gordon Printcounsel designs and produces various travel publications, press
                             advertisements, corporate IDs, annual reports and newsletters, and is engaged to oversee the
