Magazine design

Saab MockUp

Nick has designed many different types of magazine: motoring, sports, business, travel, education and so on – across all categories: consumer, customer, business to business, membership – and for all sorts of different clients. Some projects have included complex multi-language editions with huge print runs (Saab, Harley-Davidson) and others have been for much smaller clients, but all have demanded equal amounts of creative input and dedication – no job is too big or too small. Here are a few of our favourites…


1 Bite A regional food magazine for the North-West and Lake District

5 Observe Executive search company Odgers Berndtson wanted a magazine that their customers would really spend time with – a great read with captivating visuals. The result is Observe magazine. Each cover has a square cut-out slot to entice the reader to step inside…

14 MG Car Club magazine I was asked to produce a variety of new cover designs for Safety Fast/SF– The MG Car Club magazine. The design had to have a slight retro feel and maintain the ‘club’ feel of a membership magazine. These nine covers were whittled down from a selection of over 25, for presentation to the client.
