About me

My career spans editorial and design roles. When editing, I consider how the words fit the design; when designing, I'm aware of the written content. These crossover skills give me insight into the bigger picture and the end goal of engaging the target audience. I have successfully delivered solutions in various settings including:

Award-winning creative agency Dewe Rogerson (Citigate);

The Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service;

The Health and Safety Executive;

Cavendish Nuclear.

Specific skills include:

- Working within brand guidelines and house style.

- Collaborating with designers, copywriters, account managers, art directors, bid authors, clients and suppliers to ensure satisfactory outcomes.

- Scheduling, budgets, press-pass, sign-off and post-production evaluation, ensuring consistent quality in print and online.

- Simplifying language for better understanding by users. I thrive on creating clear, logical and easy-to-follow language for a wide range of audiences.
