Print design and art direction
I have 25 years experience as a graphic designer, specialising in magazine design. Since 2019 I have been freelancing with various agencies and publishers, working in areas such as graphic design, branding, news layout and exhibition design. Most of the examples below are from my most recent permanent position as Art Editor of Which? Computing magazine.
My extensive experience includes creative thinking and planning, designing front covers and page layouts, budgeting for and commissioning all photography and illustration, picture research, and passing for press / repro. I've regularly art directed photographers and organised products and props etc for photo shoots, and also photographed readers for magazine case studies. I've led a major magazine redesign and contributed to a rebrand, and have had a long and close working relationship with editorial, production and creative artworking teams.
A selection of my commissioned editorial portraits can be seen here.
I am now available for immediate work in the London or Essex areas - full or part time, freelance, temporary or contract.
