Having studied illustration at university I like to incorporate my skills in this area into my design where I can, whether it be an image I have created from scratch or a picture I have manipulated to fill the brief
When given the opportunity i like to use my Photoshop and Illustrator skills on both the cover and layouts in Recruiter magazine
A feature I was designing needed an opener to show all the items being discussed but we couldn't get hold of all of them at the same time so I did an illustration to introduce each item.
For this Midwives cover i had to learn the technique before i could create the image for the cover, i also created the diary for the layout inside
This was a great opportunity to use my illustration and graphics skills to shape the whole feature from start to finish
The subject matter on these pages isn't very visually exciting so I decided to illustrate them rather than rely on photos.
This feature was about a ride from coast to coast so I created this illustration to flow along with the text showing where they had been and the places mentioned
Designing cycle clothing guides several times a year requires a lot of fresh ideas, sometimes I chose to use my illustration skills in conjunction with a studio shoot.
There are only so many times you want to see a picture of someone eating in a magazine so I jump at the chance to create a graphical opener
I created this image to sum up all of the elements of this feature in one picture
