When it comes to magazine design I would say I know it inside out, with over ten years working in the magazine sector I have produced over a hundred publications. I have worked on a wide range of consumer and B2B magazines. Which include; Motoring, Historical, Aviation, Flight Simulation, Sport, School and Fashion to name a few.
With this wide variety of titles I have gained an abundance of experience and knowledge on layout, typography, styles and markets. I like to research into the market so I can gain an understanding what the reader wants. Every magazine is different so it is important to make them stand out and unique and keep up to date with the latest styles and trends.
I can design minimalist and clean layouts or in contrast busy and layered spreads to suit the target market and overall style, or a mix of the two.
My overall style is balanced, with strong typography and layout. I like to make an impact particularly on opening spreads and covers by using illustrations and textures.
I can complete the whole process for you starting with layouts, colour corrections of images, word or style corrections and finally sending PDFs to printers. So you can feel comfortable knowing you can leave the complete design process in my hands with a quality end product.
So if you require a quick and quality turnaround then I can deliver that.

Branding relates to the emotional relationship between a customer and a business. Identity is the look and feel of a business. They are two separate things but interlinked, along with the logo design.
If you need a complete identity change but have an established brand or on the other hand have no evident identity and need a starting place then this is something I can offer. Together we can achieve something original, something that stands out. I have started up businesses from scratch giving them a brand and identity, which includes logo design, colour schemes, fonts and the overall feel to what they want to project to their customer, with this starting place you can go on to produce anything from business cards to e-commerce websites.

Once you have established your brand and what you want to portray we can work on the style of your brand, this is where I can make your business stand out, look professional and giving you the edge.
We can establish the target market, trends, styles, projections, outcomes all combined to give you the business you are looking for. Making the right cosmetic changes will have a huge impact on your company. I will keep it simple, a strong brand but with a stylish and unique identity.

There are not many more pleasurable things than coming up with a good logo design. The logo is a major part of its brand and identity, using in its simplest form with the use of a mark or icon in which the viewer should have an emotional connection to the brand, it should be recognisable, memorable and adaptable.
A good logo is one that sticks in the mind as you pass by, in which the viewer makes a connection to and feels comfortable and confident in. A person or customer's view of a company or brand can be decided solely on there logo, with a poor logo it can lack quality and professionalism.
Within my career I have produced a number of effective logo designs ranging from smaller local companies to large scale International Companies. If you are just starting a business and would like a logo to get things off the ground or an established business looking to freshen up an existing logo then I can help you.

Over the last ten years I have produced a number of book designs, I have also created book covers, either the whole package, including illustration or picture enhancement or the styling and layout of typographic ingredients and imagery.
Within my portfolio I have examples of book designs including a 650 page reference book plotting the history of the largest man-made lake in Britain, Rutland Water. This project entailed working with over twenty writers and an editorial team who possessed specialist knowledge but required design direction and specialist input.
