blacklist studio's jayne johnson






Another day, another creative partnership. Today it's brought to you by Blacklist Studio. As the couple Nathan and Jayne say, their project was "entirely inspired by a crazy little thing called love". Sweet. Now, let's meet Jayne...

Which five words best describe you? Impulsive, perfectionist, exciteable, interested, thankful.

What was your first career & what path have you taken since? I trained as a Primary School Teacher & have since deviated to working as a stylist & creating Blacklist Prints with my husband Nathan (creative director of Blacklist Studio). It all started when I decided to create a children's fashion label & discovered my favourite part of the process was working on the photo shoots. That led to me landing a gig at SHOP 4 KIDS magazine working as the Market Editor, which I love but have had to take a little break from as we’ve just had our first child 4 weeks ago. I was trying to work out what I could do for the first few months while I’m at home looking after Willow Ever and Blacklist Prints was started & we haven’t looked back.

What's the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way? That there’s a lesson in just about everything.

What's your proudest career achievement? Probably that I work with my husband and he still enjoys having me around.

What's been your best decision? To work doing something I love, not work for the love of money.

Who inspires you? Lots of people, but professionally: My husband, Danielle DeGail, Rebecca Caratti, Jonathan Zawada, Max Doyle, Kym Ellery and Maree Homer.

What are you passionate about? Outworking ideas that remind people that life & love should be fun, creative and simple.

Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? My grandmothers.

What dream do you still want to fulfill? To renovate and create a little home by the sea and to own a shop.
