The Cheese Mag



Irina Fainberg, aka 'The Big Cheese', is a long-time cheese eater and for the past seven years the editor of Australian Dairy Foods magazine, an award-winning trade mag for the dairy industry. Her hobbies include talking cheese to anyone who'll listen and creating order out of chaos at Notch Press.


THE CHEESE MAG is designed by Barney Sullivan, a man with flair, imagination and a nose for good cheese. When he's not knee-deep in brie, he's developing branding and campaigns for the clients of his design company, Seeing Things.
