High quality print-ready artwork
Working with The Specialist Works in their Brighton studio I mainly artwork from templates the Screwfix catalogues, leaflets, POS, posters etc. In English and German (copy and paste). Working with strict design brand guidelines. Downloading images from a web storage and filing in the correct places. Designing with the latest Adobe InDesign to create the layout and PDF’s for amends and comments.

An Artworker is the designer’s mechanic
A car designer will never build or maintain a car, the mechanic does.
A professional Artworker uses InDesign to its full potential (e.g. master pages, styles, keyboard shortcuts, TOC’s etc.). Creating a clean and tidy print ready layout and will be quicker than a designer. This is excellent for large page documents / catalogues / brochures / reports and tenders, keeping consistencies and to corporate branding. An Artworker will also predict future amends and create the layout accordingly. We also have to be highly organised with studio files e.g. images, word files, amends, each office has its own filing structure. This helps other colleagues pick a project quickly.
Artworker’s enables the designer do what they are good at – DESIGNING!
