Laura Griffiths is the Deputy Group Editor at TCT Magazine, the magazine for design-to-manufacturing innovation. 

Laura graduated with a Masters in Multimedia Journalism in 2014 and joined the TCT team as an editorial assistant shortly after. Now with four magazines in Europe, North America, Asia and most recently, a German-language edition, Laura spends her time producing content for TCT’s print and digital formats and attending events across the globe reporting on the biggest industry news. 

Nora Toure: Laura, could you let us know about your background and what brought you into 3D printing in the first place?

Laura Griffiths: I don’t come from a technical background but if I remember my application letter for the TCT job correctly, I said I could write and that I was a bit of a geek. 

So, my entry into the industry was by chance, it was my first full-time editorial job after completing my Masters in Journalism. 

I started as an editorial assistant armed with basic handle on 3D printing but after spending five days a week working through the many press releases this industry puts out (even more so around that time), you quickly get to grips with the technology and its many acronyms.
