New Job

I'm excited to announce that I have a new job, this week I started at Think as the group art director based out of the new Glasgow office

Think is an award-winning content and publishing agency. It was founded by Ian McAuliffe and Tilly Boulter in 1999. Today, it employs more than 50 members of staff, works with over 35 clients and have offices in London and Glasgow.

I'd like to thank all the clients I've worked with over the last 9 years  - it's been a blast!

I've met some wonderful people and worked on fantastic titles, from Concrete Quarterly to Heat magazine. but I'm really looking forward to joining the team and Think and helping to develop their titles.

Late update! Escape wins best customer magazine

Escape, the First Great Western passenger, magazine won best Customer magazine at the PPA Independent Publisher awards

Judges comments "The judges were most impressed with the obvious and clear reader connection, suggesting a real customer value, more than satisfying the client's aims and expectations."

I was part of the winning pitch team and design every issue for Think Publishing

Cumbria Life nominated for best magazine

Congratulations to everyone at Cumbria Life magazine which has been shortlisted for Best Magazine at the 2014 Prolific North awards.

Over 200 entries were received, with many companies disappointed not to have been shortlisted after a 25% increase in entries compared to 2013

I redesigned Cumbria Life magazine in 2013 along with two other CN magazines, Dumfries and Galloway Life and Carlisle Living.
