Salient Magazine

  • Full Time
  • The responsibilities of my role included an initial rebrand and development of a visual identity. Each week I created a new layout for each issue after liaising with writers, editors and technical staff. I produced the cover art, illustrations and photography to accompany the content. When the budget enabled me to do so, I commissioned several artists, illustrators and photographers to produce visual content. Working in collaboration with the editors I saw each issue of the magazine from the drawing board through to production, to the printers and on to the shelves. I produced online content for the website and a web friendly version of each issue.
