Examples of magazine/ journal design

I have designed magazines in the past, e.g. Cristion and pages of Urdd Gobaith Cymru magazines, but not engaged in such work at present.

Web directories and catalogues which contain examples of recent work

  • Y Lolfa catalogue
  • I can supply pdf files to those wishing to see samples of specific work.

Seeking work in the following areas

  • Book covers
  • Photography

Any other information

I am now concentrating mainly on my photographic work and always welcome enquiries with suggestions for collaborative projects. I have not entirely ceased designing, but now regard it as an extension of my creative output as a photographer. I am increasingly presenting my work in the form of exhibitions and developing my own projects.
