NSW Health Staff Uniform Catalogue cover

Dressing up the uniform catalogue

Catalogues are one of those jobs that designers love to hate… unless the editing and layout instructions are clear and well organised, they have an obsessive-compulsive attention to detail and endless time to get the template exactly right. The chances of all three coming together are rare and unusual experience. The NSW Health Uniform Catalogue wasn’t one…

Healthy bodies, healthy minds, vibrant futures

In 2010 I designed the NSW Health Youth Health Policy 2010-2015, “Healthy bodies, healthy minds, vibrant futures’.

Constellation Capital

I designed these full page ads for Constellation Capital Management in 2003 when I was working on Investor Weekly magazine as the sole designer. I developed the ad concepts, wording and chose the images. I still really like them, after all this time. Particularly the teeth.    

Ethical Investor cover

Ethical Investor Magazine

In the Noughties I worked as a graphic designer for an financial publishing company, InvestorInfo. They had a number of titles, but when they decided to launch a new magazine in 2003 about investing ethically I managed to grab onto it and got to design the layout and template from scratch. Ethical investing was (and…
