Way Out West - Annual Review Magazine

I have recently completed work on the Way Out West Annual Review for the West of England Academic Health Science Network. This is an A4, 36 page publication designed by myself.

The client wanted to move away from a traditional Annual Report style which can in some cases be a little on the dull side. They wanted an interesting, engaging document that people would want to pick up and keep for future reference.

The report was given a magazine style to provide a more stimulating document for the reader. This allowed greater flexibility with a clean and creative style flowing throughout. A number of illustrations and graphical devices have been used with emphasis on creating an engaging publication for the reader.

The full publication can be viewed on Issuu here:
and more information is available via the WEAHSN website:

Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden: Summer 2017

I have recently completed the Summer 2017 issue of the Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. This is an A5, 32 page, quarterly publication regularly designed by myself.

Here are the Editors comments from the latest issue: “A short welcome from the editorial team this time to allow room for details of this summer’s exciting exhibition by Pamela Martin and Peter Chatwin. An example of their fascinating work is on the front cover and the exhibition will be free to all visitors throughout the main summer season.

“This summer there are so many events and activities for all the family, of which we have included only a taste as more details will be available after this issue goes to print. Please check the Garden website and other publicity for more information.”

I have also designed the publicity material for this years Jazz in the Garden event that is taking place on Saturday 29 July at the 
Botanic Garden. The Blue Notes with Hannah Wedlock are performing and the poster designed for the event is below.
