I am an award-winning editor and creative director with nearly 10 years' experience in international creative agencies and publishing houses. I'm most at home launching and developing publications for clients; shaping identity, editorial strategy and content for their magazine, book, website, app and everything in between. As well as original IP magazine and book projects that I have started – including OFF LIFE and YELLOW –I have run titles for such clients as Creative England, National Union of Teachers, Visit England, Blohm+Voss and Arts Council.
Yellow (print and digital book)
Yellow was an exciting digital and book project that saw 52 of the world's most exciting artists illustrate 52 an entire year of news stories. The concept was to investigate what artists can bring to news coverage beyond traditional print and TV journalism. Beginning as a weekly digital series in late 2014, Yellow was eventually collected and published as a beautiful luxury book in December 2015 – taking over £25k in sales on Kickstarter and orders from some the UK's most desirable stockists.
