For most of my career I have worked as an independent freelancer for UK-based publishers. I have also at various times worked in-house either in a freelance capacity or as a member of staff. In particular I have worked in-house for Quarto Publishing, Duncan Baird Publishing, Bridgewater Books, Mitchell Beazley and De Agostini (Milan). My freelance clients include all those publishers just mentioned as well as Bloomsbury, Dorling Kindersley, Frances Lincoln, Merrell, Ryland Peters and Small and many other well-known publishers.

I am comfortable working on all stages of the design process, from initial concept roughs, presentations, page layout and covers through to publicity material, trade catalogues and web/digital design.

My strengths are an unerring eye for what looks ‘right’ and strong organizational skills for large complex projects, combined with meticulous care over the smallest details. I have a reputation for sorting out troublesome projects and getting the work done on time.

I use Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver up to CS6, Freeway and QuarkXpress. Read Less

Pricing
For most clients I work on a mutually agreed fixed-price contract for the job. I am also happy to work on an hourly rate if required. Because jobs vary enormously in their requirements it is difficult to estimate costs until a project is discussed. Read Less
