I have been proud to have helped this charity keep an important part of British aviation history flying. The magazine is produced to inform and promote the Association’s work. The Association was started in the 1970s by a group of historic aviation enthusiasts, who wanted to contribute towards keeping the Lancaster bomber and associated aircraft, flying. To that end they formed an association and have grown the membership to 6,000. Each year these members receive a twice yearly magazine, and promotional material. The magazine is divided into historic accounts of Lancaster crews missions during the War and news about the current status of the Lancaster. I was approached by the Editor, Tom Allett, to refresh the magazine and help produce the magazine. Tom and I have worked together for a number of years on the magazine. We have moved from a very basic setup to a sophisticated remote office arrangement, which has helped myself develop systems and methods for magazine production via the internet.
For over twenty years I have worked as a graphic designer at Key Publishing. I am now the Assistant Chief Designer at Europes leading aviation and transport publishing company.

The owner Martyn Chorlton needed a shop site to promote and distrubute his many and varied publications.

Barnes Chiropractic Healthcare
Barnes Chiropractic Healthcare is based in Barnes, near London, close to the river. Dr Julian Barnes BSc DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) had the idea to combine the near by river, with its natural curves, and the similar shape of the spine. From this starting point I produced a series of information leaflets and brochures promoting the practices services.
Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the health and function of the spine and nervous system. Because of this focus on the spine, many people think chiropractors can only help with problems such as back pain, neck pain and headaches. And while it’s true, chiropractors often help people with pain, there is so much more to chiropractic than just pain. Chiropractic care is really about total health and wellbeing. It’s about helping people to feel great, and get the most out of life by functioning at their optimal potential. Wear and tear of everyday life can impact the spine and cause spinal segments to move in a dysfunctional way. That wear and tear can happen gradually from poor posture or repetitive movements or it can happen suddenly as with sports injuries, a bad fall or car accident.
Pakistan Air Force
I was approached by the former AirForces Monthly editor to help him to create a definitive history of the Pakistan Air Force. This book would span a defining period in the airforces history from 1998 too 2008. Alan wanted to create a book which illustrate the professionalism, high standards and independent nature of the air force. With this in mind the book was structured and designed in a magazine style making it visually appealing, with a mixture of images and words.
Bowls Direct are Europe’s number 1 retailer of approved ladies and men’s clothing and equipment. Lawn bowls, bowls accessories, bowling shoes, bowling clothes and much more. I was asked to design promotional pages, which highlighted the various aspects and qualities of a number lawn bowls manufactures. This involved taking a number of disparate promotional images and creating a unified theme. Which would promote Bowls Directs service and the various items they sell.
Pakistan Air Force: JF-17
The Pakistan Air Force decided to attempt a difficult, and unique, project to design and build their own fighter. With its mix of technologies but still meeting the PAF’s tactical needs, it skirts around the effects of western sanctions that the PAF and many other air forces may have suffered from in recent years. The Pakistan Air Force promoted the JF-17 Thunder at the Paris Airshow and they required a brochure highlighting its many capabilities and strengths. I was asked by the author, Alan Warnes, to design a brochure that highlighted the history,
Anglia Bowls is an independent Sports clothing and equipment store based in Norwich. The brief from Anglia Bowls was to create a unified and modern brochure which could be sent out to the thousands of bowls players across the country. The brochure was divided into sections highlighting the many needs of the players, such Polishes and Waxes, wet weather clothing and new bowls. The bowls themselves now come in a staggering array of colours, patterns, sizes and weights. The modern bowls players is a discerning customer so products had to be displayed clearly.
