Layout design

Making high-quality, low-budget printed material incorporating innovative, original imagery brings me great satisfaction. Teamwork and co-production methods are a priority, and I work closely with project leads, as well as copywriters and photographers. Choosing sustainable materials and printing methods is also crucial and I ensure these are tailored to meet the needs and ethos of each project.

I designed the booklet for the Giant’s Quoit, an award-winning restoration of a Neolithic Cornish monument, for which I also led community outreach projects. I also relish working with fonts that can handle a different language. For the Giant’s Quoit, this was Cornish, while for Coral Communities, I created both French and English versions of a printed newspaper. My only regret is that we didn’t gain funding to make a Swahili version – a project for the future.

For the project Rate My View, I created a set of postcards for key outlets located at popular sites, after visiting all the UK locations with a photographer. Now that the project includes overseas sites, I’ve been accessing the landscape virtually, sharing files with photographers based abroad to create layouts in different languages, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
