Country Style Instagram Videos

When working at Country Style magazine, I created monthly Instagram videos for both the Country Style and Homelife magazine Instagram pages. Two videos posted to Country Style’s Instagram page received over 8,000 and 10,000 views. The total views of all my videos created for Country Style at the end of 2018 was 98,700.

The Art team commissioned a freelance Illustrator to draw a selection of our covers. I thought it would be a good idea to have her film the process so that I could turn it into an Instagram video. I briefed the Illustrator, edited the video (of the June cover) to be under a minute, sourced royalty free music and uploaded the video to Instagram.

This video has since been viewed more than 10,000 times organically and is one of Country Style’s most watched videos (at the time of writing).
I created this video for our May issue as part of our  “Inside the Cover” series on Instagram which were short videos showing behind the scenes of each month’s cover shoot. This allowed readers to connect more with each issue and have a look inside the issue before buying it.

The video has over 5,000 views.


I created this video for the May issue looking inside the feature's Decorating story. This was an idea I had after looking at the beautiful imagery in the story. I combined the images with a behind the scenes video of sheep and a quote pulled from the story.

The video performed very well and has over 8,000 views.
I created monthly videos to give a preview inside the month's issue. This is a video promoting the October issue and I briefed a musician to create the music.
This video has 5,000 views.
