I have an extensive background in magazine design, first at MB Media where I worked on four publications a month, Drummer, Guitar Buyer, Motorcycle Racer and Music Trade News, producing all subsequent layout work along side Art Director Richard Page. Each magazine has a completely different style tailored towards its particular audience. Each publication was to be completed within one week with non-negotiable deadlines to be met. Working in this way has enabled me to refine the way I plan my work and while gaining valuable experience in a pressured environment.
Subsequently I worked on at Information Publications Ltd I work on a weekly interiors retail magazine called Cabinet Maker. My job was to layout the whole of the magazine along with copy chasing artwork for display and classified. When needed I put together artwork for display and classified. I also helped out with layout work for our local authority magazines. These included Countywide, District Wide and South Cambs magazine.
Currently I work with Editor Mark Williams of Top Cover Magazine to produce the Police Firearms Officers Association magazine. To view this current work please click on this link Top Cover Magazine. I have worked from Issue 12 onwards.
