“This writing business. Pencils and whatnot. Overrated if you ask me.”
(Winnie the Pooh)

 

Before getting into multimedia I was a magazine editor and writer, and still enjoy working on print-based projects. Words and images on paper aren’t any better than words and images on screen, but they are different.

Print: writing and editing

Design and editing for Cambridge Jones’ ‘Face The Music’ photography exhibition (Proud Galleries, London). I also created Cambridge’s website.

(reviews).

Journalism

I write mostly for clients in the professional audio and video markets, but will take on any interesting and rewarding projects. Other clients include large investment banks, www.rockfordsrockopera.com, and medical technology companies.

Copywriting

With my experience of magazine publishing, and of producing a variety of literature for clients in a PR or marketing role, I can take on a wide range of editing and publishing tasks. I prefer to work with a decent designer when budgets allow, but when money is tight I can offer clients better value by taking on design and layout myself.
