Talisa Sutton


With a penchant for 70s, 80s to now, old films, soy lattes and love song dedications (baby come back..), Talisa is a former graphic designer and content manager turned style influencer with an undying love for magazines. After co-founding Badlands Studio with her husband, Rohan Peterson, the duo had a vision to create their own digital publication – Badlands Journal.

Rohan Peterson

Creative Director

With a background in art direction for luxury brands and premium titles, Rohan enjoys typography, a good book, technology and the colour black. When he’s not busy art directing shoots, laying out pages for the journal, or working on projects through Badlands Studio, you’ll find Ro travelling, painting or watching videos of robots. True story.
