Sarahjane’s client had lost his original logo artwork file and needed a new vector file (jpeg, png) recreated. A clean, crisp, web friendly file to use for their website and word documents. They also required the font to be updated to a more modern style keeping the colours and shape.
A logo is very important in business and one can be created from a photo or a scribble. Illustrator files can easily be made into jpegs and png, for using on your website and Microsoft Word files.

Sarahjane artwork report data as a spider graph and a radar chart
Graphs are easy for Sarahjane to design using Illustrator and them imported into an InDesign report layout. Using supplied data and her Artworker skills, Sarahjane changes the colour to match the document branding.
This 240 page legal report contained 40 graphs as well as lots of tables. Once the first graph was approved Sarahjane quickly created the rest.
Graphs come in different shapes and can be designed to fit the space available on a page. Working closely with the consultant the report was finish before the deadline.
Designed by the Art Director and finished by Sarahjane Jackson
The Art Director created the design concept and the branding with the college. From this branding Sarahjane created the 44 page Student Handbook and Pre-arrival Handbook as print ready artwork.
The Artwork consisted of setting up InDesign master pages using styles. Collating images and using Photoshop to save them as print ready. Changes and amends where added to the PDF proofs by the college and Sarahjane completed these to reach the final version.
Sarahjane creates high quality artwork that is ready for print. Some designer create a draft design for the Artworker to update with the final print ready version.
Creating a final version from the start saves time and stress before a huge print deadline like the Fringe Festival brochure. Sarahjane is highly organised and makes sure all her artwork is CMYK, with the correct brand fonts and colours.
Artworker uses InDesign to collate Microsoft Word files for print
Sarahjane was given the challenge of combining together a collection of research documents into one simple easy to use interactive file with a contents and appendices. Plus the added bonus of it being small enough to email out to clients around the world.
Adobe InDesign is the perfect tool for the job, placing Microsoft Word files and using hyperlinks on top, creating a 226 page document. The PDF was then made into a smaller file size for emailing.
Sarahjane enjoys helping out local businesses with flyers, leaflets, web icons and banners. She charges by the hour and can create artwork from a found sample ideas or a sketch.
Sarahjane’s tip to help decide on a size for your flyer or leaflet is to get a print estimate first, for single or double sided. Plus a sample is very handy to touch and feel the quality and to see the size of the font and images.
Sarahjane desk hopped around the office over a few weeks covering the email and helping out on projects while the designers where on holiday. The Senior Designer had created the menus templates with the client and Sarahjane updated the content and made it print ready. Also updating and amending American Express T&Cs, catalogues, leaflets and banners.
Working remotely I was asked to design a staff stock catalogue using existing website branding (colours, logo and fonts). A simple and quick layout of 26 pages. This lead to me creating two more catalogues, two order forms and a stock leaflet. Using the latest Adobe InDesign to create the layout and PDF’s for amends and comments.
Sarahjane used Brian previous artwork and recreated the new updated Wired Sussex Job Fair paper. Working in-house in the Brighton studio with the latest InDesign. Copy sent approved and added to layout. Creating a new map from scratch using Illustrator, keeping everything print ready for the tight deadline.
I enjoy a challenge and Fruit asked if I would create Microsoft Word templates for University of Cambridge to help standardise their paperwork. The designer had created the rebrand and I copied this style into Microsoft Word. Using headers, footers and styles to create a variety of templates.
Microsoft Word styles are easy to use once you know how. I am also available to teach.
This Artworker enjoys working alongside Senior Designers, to create consistent layouts and to a very tight deadline. With a basic InDsign template, text and images sourced and artwork to fit these catalogue pages.
