Cricket MockUp 4

We don’t just design magazines and newspapers – we can turn our hands to all sorts of other types of editorial publication. For instance, we’ve worked with top sport’s journalists to produce bold and eye-catching cricket match-day programmes; we’ve wrestled with the rigorous demands of presenting financial information in annual reports and accounts and we’ve designed elegant brochures that help brand and position companies in the forefront of their marketplace. And we’ve just recently completed the design of a 200 page book celebrating the 50th anniversary of the luxury boat builder Fairline.

1 Essex Cricket match day programmes Nick worked with The Times writer Mark Baldwin to produce Essex County Cricket Club’s match programmes and a whole raft of other marketing material. “We have been very impressed with your customer service and the quality of your design. You have provided us with a fresh and contemporary branding that we hope will increase our visitor numbers.” said Danny Macklin, Commercial Director, Essex Cricket. And: “Last night we were proudly awarded with two ECB awards: Best FL t20 campaign and Best Customer Engagement. This is a massive achievement and one you can take pride in.” ↓




2 Brochure and branding for content provider Orwell When I’m not designing for Gilburt and Paul, I collaborate with two ex-work colleagues and old friends, the journalists and writers Jonathan Arnold and Gary Mead. We have a partnership called Orwell and our aim is to provide businesses with influential content and design (annual reports, brochures, magazines etc) that enhances those businesses’ core philosophies so that they become better known, better understood and better received. Here are pages from the Orwell promotional brochure that I designed in autumn 2016 ↓

3 ECB and ICC match day programmes Dummy designs for the England Cricket 2014 matches against Sri Lanka and India, and the ICC Champions Trophy held in England in 2013. The pitch work for the ECB England programmes included a proposal for fully interactive digital versions of all programmes – take a look in the Digital section 









4 Archant annual reports Nick has designed many annual reports and is adept at presenting detailed financial information in an attractive and easy-to-digest manner. Nick commissioned the illustrator Adam Simpson to produce this charming cover illustration for the 2012 Archant Report. Archant is a ‘community’ publisher and the tree was a clever way of summing up the Archant business. 


5 Annual report for RNAA  A recent design for the cover and a couple of spreads for the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association annual report 2014 




6 Brochures for Carter Jonas Pages from an annual property brochure for Carter Jonas estate agents with commissioned illustrations from Sarah McMenemy, Michael O’Shaughnessy and Matthew Richardson

8 50th anniversary book for Fairline Yachts  Nick worked with writer and editor Jonathan Arnold to produce a 200 page book celebrating 50 years of Fairline Yachts. Fairline began life as a small boat builder in Northamptonshire in 1967. They now export their beautifully designed and engineered boats worldwide. The book was put together in just one month from start to finish! ↓
