Journalist Dransfield joins Lick PR

Dransfield previously produced written and video content for the likes of The Guardian, Kotaku, PC Gamer, GamesTM and Eurogamer. Before that, he also worked at Imagine Publishing as senior staff writer for over three years.
I’m very happy to make the leap to PR with such an experienced and downright bloody smart team as the one here at Lick. Also: dogs in the office (but don’t tell the building manager),” he said.
New features editor for GamesTM
Former senior staff writer Josh West has been promoted to features editor at GamesTM magazine. West joined Imagine Publishing in 2012 as staff writer, having spent seven years as a freelancer. He also worked for other magazines at the publisher, such as X-One magazine and NowGamer.
I am incredibly psyched to be appointed features editor on GamesTM. I’ve spent the last few years working in print and I still believe that magazines are the very best place to read about video games and the culture that surrounds them,” West said. Working alongside a brilliant team, the plan is the same as it has always been: to continue finding creative and awesome ways to cover the latest and greatest in gaming.”
