New trends in professional membership communications

Design and infographics for Think Publishing's research paper into professional membership communication trends.

Cumbria Life and a very young and lithe Richard Madeley

A very young and lithe Richard Madeley can be spotted in a story about the 40 years of Radio Cumbria in the latest issue of Cumbria Life, along with the Phil Rigby's stunning photo story of the Wasdale Triathlon and photos of Liddle Water.

Ghost hunting at the National Trust

Scotland in Trust is the member magazine for the National Trust for Scotland. The latest issue was mailed out in September and takes readers on a ghost hunt around the (reputedly) haunted Fyvie Castle; reveals The Proclaimers love of Torridon and previews the new Bannockburn visitor centre

Next! The November issue of Carlisle Living

The second issue of the redesigned Carlisle Living features an investigation about Michael Knighton, the man who once tried to buy Manchester United and is now the conceptual artist Kongthin Pearlmich; an interview with Hebburn star (and Carlisle lass) Lisa McGrillis and a vintage fashion shoot.
