Picture research & editing
Layout & pre-press
Pioneering postal agency, ONEPOST, has produced a regular newsletter for over 10 years keeping its clients and prospects abreast of the latest news and information about the UK’s changing postal marketplace. Remarkably for a company publication it has achieved a respected position within the industry.
We have copy-edited well over 50 editions (16 or 20 A5 pages) of Post Impressions and handled all the picture research and editing, undertaken the typesetting and layout, and produced the final print-ready/digital artwork.

Portfolio Risk Mapping Editorial
A trade magazine article explaining a new product for a corporate risk strategy consultancy.
Although written for an interested business audience, the approach and product concept were new and needed explaining in straightforward terms, but without ever being patronising.
Grafx Digital Technologies
Concept and copy
Grafx provide top quality support to the creative industries in the West of England.
Creating a newsletter to send to designers was interesting enough but talking about computer systems to non-technical people whose businesses relied on it was an added challenge.

Certus Limited – Corporate Risk Strategy
The corporate risk strategy and finance area is not one where you would normally expect strong branding, but a powerful company image works just as well here as in the consumer space.
A striking black and yellow theme reflecting well-known hazard warning signs was combined with images of the Red Arrows – known for their ability to turn well-calculated risk into the ‘reward’ of spectacular air displays.
