Art Directed Savills property supplements on behalf of Country Life with full creative control and management of the project, liaising with the client. I ran the project for four years between 2015-18.
In the 2018 issue I was commissioned to illustrate the local secrets four page feature as shown to the left. Savills were particularly pleased at how the feature turned out.
I picked up the Winkworth supplement half way through as tragically the previous designer suddenly passed away. The deadline was met and the project ran smoothly after a sudden stop. I was responsible for the picture research, layout design and final cover selection. A small amount of retouching was required and the client was very happy with the result. This lead to a repeat booking for the second supplement.

Advertorials designed across 28 titles including Marie Claire, InStyle, Ideal Home and Look. This was a busy and challenging role designing to each individual magazine’s house style and in keeping with the client’s brief. I was directly responsible for final preparation of all material ahead of press. I was also a key stakeholder within the business development team, responsible for the design of pitchmaterial in each magazines house style for presentation to prospective advertisers including material for Look magazine pitching to Clinique.
Whilst working on the repro
desk for IPC Creative, I did a
lot of retouching for national magazines including Marie Claire, InStyle, Look, Essentials and Country Life.
Beauty retouching would focus on skin and making
clothes look as appealing but still true to what the garment was. For example taking out creases and changing cuff colours if the prototype used for the photoshoot has now changed. Also hair, make up and nail retouching featured highly.
For the Royal Jubilee edition of Country Life, I cut out a whole spread of tiaras -
beautiful but intricate!
