I currently work with a number of publishers including Hodder Education Collins Publishers, Oxford University Press, Edinburgh University Press on a wide variety of projects covering education, language-learning, ELT, dictionaries, reference, art titles etc. The services I offer are design, typesetting (working in Adobe Creative Suite) and picture research.
Languages I have worked with include: English, French, Spanish, German, Scots Gaelic, Portuguese, Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Turkish, Romanian, Russian, Japanese and Kurdish.
I'm a member of the PRA (the Picture Research Association) in the UK.
I was the Design and Prepress Manager at Chambers Harrap, part of the Hachette group. My role was to set up and run a Prepress Department which involved bringing typesetting in-house and working closely with the other departments including editorial, XML, data and production teams to improve the workflow of the company. My department also worked on typesetting projects for other areas of the Hachette group around the world, including Larousse in France, Mexico, Italy and Brazil, and Houghton Mifflin in the US.
