About me

Roamland Studio is the alter-ego of Diana Jarvis, a freelance designer with 15+ years experience. Most of my experience is in print design but I've also undertake a couple of digital and web projects. I was the senior designer at Rough Guides for nine years and was responsible for art directing and designing large-scale publishing projects. Since going freelance in 2012 I've worked with a wide range of businesses across pr, publishing and the charity/not for profit sectors. Clients include the National Literacy Trust, Cool Camping, Duckworth Books, Aspire Marketing, Bright Bee Comms, Travel PR, VocalEyes and Hamilton PR, among others. I also work professionally as a photographer.
