With 30 years of experience as journalists and editors between them, Studio Home Page’s Founders Jessica Jonzen and Rosalind Sack know what makes a good story. Together, they’ve launched their own popular online interiors and lifestyle magazine The Home Page; have appeared on expert panels for The Conran Shop and Top Drawer and hosted events with Farrow & Ball and Molly Mahon. Now, Jess and Ros have brought their unique career experiences and insights together with their network of creative and technical talent to create Studio Home Page. Their boutique content agency will help you find your voice, tell your story, and meaningfully connect with your audience.
Jess started her career on the News Review desk of The Sunday Times, where she worked alongside some of the UK’s most celebrated journalists and used her charm and wits to secure the paper’s big interview each week. From there, she took the plunge and went freelance, writing everything from news, travel and lifestyle features for The Times and parenting features for Smallish and Little London magazines to culture articles and celebrity interviews for Net-a-Porter. This led to Jess becoming their Deputy Editor before she moved on to do the same role at MATCHESFASHION.COM. There, she edited two weekly magazines, had her eagle eyes on every social media post and marketing email and helped shape the brand’s tone of voice. After leaving London for leafy Buckinghamshire, Jess was hired by a regional glossy lifestyle magazine and it was there that she met Ros and their idea for Studio Home Page and The Home Page magazine was born.
Jess is an experienced and versatile writer and editor and has written for the likes of The Sunday Times Home; The Sunday Times Magazine; Stella and Harrods Home & Property as well as branded content for BBC Worldwide; Royal Holloway, University of London and superyacht company Ocean Independence. Jess loves hosting events and is a regular face at The Henley Literary Festival where she has chaired talks with the likes of Prue Leith and Terry Waite. She also chairs the series of In Conversation events at luxury Cotswold hotel Calcot, where she has interviewed Dolly Alderton, Bryony Gordon and Amelia Freer to name a few.
Ros’ journalism career began as a news reporter in the field, cutting her teeth as a features writer at the highly-respected South West News Service national press agency. Here, she secured and wrote exclusive news and human-interest features for a broad range of national newspapers and magazines. On moving to London Ros freelanced in the newsroom at ITV’s flagship breakfast show, GMTV, securing interviewees and writing news scripts, before moving to the Hearst UK magazine house to work as an Entertainment Reporter. Quickly rising through the ranks to become Entertainment Editor, Ros spent several years as a regular at film premieres, awards ceremonies and photoshoots interviewing well-known names from across the worlds of television, film and music. Ros became a regular talking head on BBC Radio and television news and she was also involved with developing a number of special projects and launches at Hearst UK. Here, Ros’ meticulous eye for detail saw her editing and proofreading commissioned copy, while her savvy commercial insight was called on for developing cross-platform content strategy.
During this time, Ros undertook a course in interior design at London’s prestigious KLC School of Design which reignited her personal passion for interior design and she left the world of showbiz to become Editor at a regional glossy lifestyle magazine which majored on interiors. Her consultancy work has since seen her advising on copy and PR strategies for international interiors brands and offering expert insight on magazine relaunch projects at Bauer Media. Ros has also crafted compelling branded content for the likes of Next, Mamas & Papas and eBay and she has chaired live one-on-one interviews and panel discussions at the Henley Literary Festival.
