Talks and workshops

I've recently given two talks, helped run a cover workshop at the PPA's Magfest and run a design workshop at Bauer's Peterborough Offices.

The Magfest cover workshop was held in Edinburgh and included professional designers and members of the public working together in a hands-on design master-class.

During the workshop teams were led by industry experts to design magazine covers, with each team competing to produce the best cover at the end of the session.

Along with Jeremy Leslie and Andrew Losowsky I also gave a brief introductory talk outlining the key elements of a successful cover.

My team (above) included  Chiara Pannozzo, Riona McElfatrick, Ryan Law, Cate Sutton and Jane Massey

Bauer Design Workshop
Bauer asked me to run a workshop for their editorial designers.

I combined talks on cover and feature design, including a number of case studies with quick paced workshops where the designers could develop their magazine craft.
