Manna: Winter 2018 Issue

I have recently designed the Winter '18 issue of Manna magazine. This is an A4 quarterly publication regularly produced for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “Conflict is impossible to avoid in life, but how do we keep that conflict civil and even constructive – and what can we do when it spirals out of control?

“Brendan Cox, husband of Jo Cox MP who was killed in 2015, knows the personal cost of destructive disagreements. He talks of the need to come together ahead of this year’s ‘Great Get Together’. The Very Revd Dr John Davies, Dean of Wells, also references the importance of community, along with learning, in his interview.

“Whether you are struggling to deal with a conflict situation at home, school, work or church it is good to know there is always someone who can help – you can hear from three of them in our ‘Making peace’ feature. Peace is something that Ecumenical Accompanier, Anne Plested who has recently returned from the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, prays for. She shares her faith story on page 10.

“We hear some personal perspectives from two of our clergy on the ordination of women and human sexuality, while Simon Keyes, Professor of Reconciliation and Peacebuilding at the University of Winchester, asks us to reflect on good and bad disagreement.”

Sunrise Foundation Logo Design



I have recently completed work on a logo for the local charity Sunrise Foundation CIO. The logo design reflects the approach and positive impact the charity aims to have on those that it supports.

The Sunrise Foundation supports the work of charities working with disabled and/or disadvantaged children and adults. They thoroughly investigate any organisations applying for grants, to ensure those grants will make a positive impact on the lives of individuals who face a wide range of challenging and often distressing difficulties in their daily lives.

Artwork for West of England AHSN Annual Conference 2017

I have recently produced a pull-up banner, A4 poster and A5 leaflet for the West of England AHSN Annual Conference 2017 which took place on 30th November 2017. Entitled 'Navigating the healthcare innovation landscape' the material explores the role of innovation exchanges in developing relationships between industry and health communities.



This year the annual conference focused on what the WEAHSN has learned about transformation as a healthcare community here in the West of England, and what they might learn from others around the country.

The keynote speaker for the event was Bill Lucas, Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning and Professor of Learning at the University of Winchester, an authority on practical and vocational learning and has undertaken ground-breaking research into pedagogy, creativity and habit change.

Gift Membership Poster

I have recently designed this Gift Membership poster for the Friends of the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. This was originally designed for the quarterly A5 Newsletter that I regularly produce and has then been adapted for promotional use.

The garden is beautiful and well worth a visit. It is filled with a huge diversity of plants, including many exotic species set in inspirational displays against the backdrop of a striking Victorian house. The huge garden has been designed to tell stories about plant evolution and is home to various plant collections.

Gift membership would make a perfect Christmas present for any green fingered relatives!

For more information about the Botanic Garden view their website here: www.bristol.ac.uk/botanic-garden.

Graphic Bubble Issuu Portfolio

I have created my digital portfolio on Issuu to promote the graphic design work and services that I provide. This includes editorial, logo and promotional design for a variety of my clients. Although most of this work is recent there are some older jobs from my time at Venue Publishing that I believe show the experience I can provide. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss any future design work with me. Client testimonials are available on each page and where possible I have linked to the digital version of the specific job. I hope that you enjoy the work.

Manna: Autumn 2017 Issue

I have recently designed the Autumn '17 issue of Manna magazine. This is an A4 quarterly publication regularly produced for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “‘What in the world are you worried about?’ Where to begin you may say, with recent world events. So how can we sustain ourselves when things look bleak? For The Right Revd David Walker, Bishop of Manchester, who reflects on his city’s response to a tragic act of terrorism, love is most definitely the answer.

“Thankfully, those of us directly affected by such terrible acts as that visited on Manchester are rare. Financial worries, health concerns and family matters are much more common to us all. In this edition of Manna we talk to people in our diocese living with and giving hope in some challenging circumstances and we also gain an insight into what is worrying our young people and how we can help them.

“‘Where is God in all this?’ is a common refrain when things are tough, whether in the media or perhaps from someone you know. Dr Tim Davy, research fellow at Redcliffe College, shares his insight into the Book of Job to help us reflect on that question, while Rural Affairs Adviser Rob Walrond and The Revd Joy Hawes share their feelings of hope as they talk about their faith and their work.”

40th Anniversary Zambia Logo for the Diocese of Bath and Wells



I have recently created a new logo design for the Diocese of Bath and Wells to mark the 40th anniversary of its companion link with dioceses in Zambia.

Inspired by the wonderful chitenge designs from the country, the design is vibrant and fun in nature. There’s an obvious link to the church with the use of the cross and I’ve used the colours from the Zambia flag in a subtle way.

Here’s more about the upcoming celebrations from the latest issue of Manna magazine “Parishes in Bath and Wells and Zambia have supported each other to live and tell the story of Jesus in their communities since 1978.

“The Diocese will be celebrating this milestone with a programme of thanksgiving and celebration in 2018. Events will begin in Zambia in April with ‘Live the Link’ which will see a group of Bath and Wells’ folk visit Zambia on an immersive, educational experience. Special services will be held in the five Zambian dioceses and our Bishops will visit Zambia to give thanks for the partnership and be welcomed to a national celebration on 29 April. In Bath and Wells, celebrations are planned for July, including a service at Wells Cathedral on Saturday 14 July and a tour of link parishes by our Zambian bishops. The programme culminates with a summer youth exchange in August.”
