Manna: Autumn 2014 Issue

I've recently completed work on the Autumn 2014 issue of Manna magazine, this is now available to view online. Manna is a quarterly, 24 page publication designed by Graphic Bubble for The Diocese of Bath & Wells.

The Autumn issue focuses on healing and asks, ‘what does it really mean to be healed?’. The lead column by Trevor Dean reflects on prayer for healing in the context of his GP work in a deprived area of South Bristol. In the interview, Gilly Bunce, shares her experience of healing: simple steps forward in personal growth being perhaps more realistic than dramatic miracles. In another interview, the Right Revd Peter Maurice, Bishop of Taunton shares his personal experience of healing and why he believes the church needs healing at its heart.

John Foskett shares his unexpected reaction to facing illness in My Faith, and Sue Yabsley shows us the importance of self care for our clergy who she supports in her role each day. And what was the purpose of the healing miracles? Did they really happen? Revd Matt Thomson explains why he is convinced they did in Soul Food.

Bristol Festival of Song Brochure 2014

I've recently completed work on this year's Bristol Festival of Song brochure for Gathering Voices. This is an A5, 16 page brochure for the event that's now in its 5th year. Taking place between 10th - 19th October, the festival comes highly recommended.

As Festival Director Hannah Klewin explains "We have been supported for the 2nd year running by Arts Council England, the Bristol Festival of Song has remained true to its original principles of being a ground-up, community-led, inclusive and high quality festival, which now includes performers from across the region.

"Naturally, this couldn’t have happened without the commitment, creativity and hard work of the countless individuals, groups, choirs and ensembles that make up this extraordinary City of Song.

"The majority of our programme remains free of charge. Where tickets are charged we try to keep them to £5 – meaning a family of 2 adults and 2 children can come along for £10!

"Our hope is that you will find something to surprise, delight, intrigue and inspire you in this year’s eclectic programme and remember to keep checking the festival website for updates."

Impact Rugby Charity Poster

I have recently designed a poster for a charity rugby match being organised by Impact Rugby Club. The match takes place this Sunday at their Rugby Ground in Whitchurch and kicks off at 2pm.

This is the second charity event they have put on and last year they raised over £3,000 for Help for Heroes. This year they want to double that amount and raise £6,000 for two charities, The Jessie May Trust and Children's Hospice South West. It's not just the rugby on show, there is a DJ and live music, hog roast, charity raffle, BBQ, outdoor bar and kids face painting. This is definitely an event worth supporting!

Manna: Summer 2014 Issue

I've recently completed work on the Summer 2014 issue of Manna magazine, this is now available to view online. Manna is a quarterly, 24 page publication designed by Graphic Bubble for The Diocese of Bath & Wells. This issue also features an additional four page diocesan annual review for 2013.

The Summer issue focuses on forgiveness and asks, ‘how do you forgive?’. The Interview is with Martin Cavender, Director of ReSource, who recounts some of his experiences in Rwanda, where people were grappling with issues of forgiveness on a scale far beyond his comprehension.

In the main feature accounts from Marian Liebmann, leader in the field of restorative justice and mediation, Fiona Gardner, former Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser and Revd Rod Corke, Vicar at St Mary Magdalene in Taunton, make it clear that forgiveness is not an easy or automatic option.
