Bradford Graham is a 36-year-old Sydney, Australia, based graphic designer (by education) who moonlights as a Basketball wordsmith (vocation).
After graduating from the University of Western Sydney (U.W.S.) in 2004, Brad joined the Art Department at FilmInk magazine. While employed by Publisher Dov Kornits, Brad successfully pitched and started producing handle magazine on a bi-monthly basis. Just 24-years-old when the title launched, Brad served as both Editor-In-Chief and Art Director, and would go on to help the magazine win Editorial (Best Feature) and Creative (Best non-action photo) awards at the domestic Australian league’s annual media night.
While at the helm of handle, Brad interviewed notable film-makers (i.e. Spike lee and Zach Braff) as well as Hip Hop royalty (Chuck D, RZA, et al.). He also conducted countless photo shoots with Basketball’s biggest names — both domestic and in the U.S.. In all, Brad curated, designed, edited and produced content for 22 print editions before the Global Financial Crisis forced the title to close.
In 2010, Brad moved south and joined Sneaker Freaker as the outlet’s Associate Editor. During his time with the Melbourne based publication he worked with a variety of footwear and apparel brands and counts his efforts on the Puma funded Clyde sneaker book as a personal highlight. Despite the envious position he held, Brad was unable to shake his love for all things Basketball, thus he went about securing funding from 2K Games for his next venture: a self-published, internationally distributed consumer magazine titled Buckets. Acting as the title’s Publisher, Editor and Creative Director, Brad produced a collection of print and e-magazines while also providing select content on the side for a number of sports media outlets (including Basketball Insiders, Dime and SLAM).
In mid 2015, Brad, along with Mohan Gumatay (twitter.com/djmotwister) and notable social media parody curator Chris Savage (@NotBillWalton) developed and sold a uniquely formatted, N.B.A. centric, podcast titled the Full Court Report to one of The Philippines’ largest broadcasters, Media5. As one of the show’s co-hosts, Brad help deliver 65 entertaining episodes while also contributing various creative items (including the show logo, t-shirt designs and social media artwork) to help the network launch the show and later expand its appeal / audience. Now a design assassin for hire, Brad hopes to finish and release his first (Basketball) book in 2018 while seeking creative roles and opportunities wherever they may surface.
