I work with clients in the UK and US electronically via dropbox, email and FTP, but I am also happy to work in-house with clients on specific longer-term projects and those that require a more ad-hoc approach.
My experience includes trade and commercial titles, B2B alongside academic publishing and magazines/journals. With strong project management and design skills combined with an eye for detail, I work within a flexible routine designed to take account of tight deadlines. I have designed a high volume of top-quality publications for a range of clients which has required creative thinking, the ability to problem solve and the implementation of new ideas.
Projects covered include sports, the natural world, World War I and II, biographies, series of magazines, academic course books (350+ pp), motoring titles and the music industry. Current and recent clients include WH Smith, Barnes & Noble, Marks & Spencer, BHS, The Academy of Contemporary Music, Next, The National Trust and the England Football Association.
My expertise lies in forward-thinking and attractive, reader-friendly publications, within competitive and affordable budgets.
Skills: Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, design and page layout (books, magazines, brochures and journals), column and website updates, technical guides and photo research.

Ian was very helpful and gave good advice as well as suggestions for me to consider. His experience within this field was evident and he responded in good time despite my own time delays and various re-adjustments from my end. Ian was always very accommodating and showed understanding.
Many thanks Ian!
