Branding is very important for your website and adding a logo to your photos is one way you can do this. With the help of a Freelance Artworker, she uses Adobe InDesign to typeset a branded logo photo png.

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.
Legal document updated to new brand colours and logos
A Microsoft Word document is usually supplied in a real mess, a collection of different fonts and colours. This can be imported directly into InDesign and manipulating the font to fit on four sides and still be readable.
Sarahjane also created an interactive PDF, recreated a T&Cs layouts, made amends to existing projects and help create an EPUB.
Sarahjane also works remotely and was asked to design a staff stock catalogue using existing website branding (colours, logo and fonts). A simple flowing table layout of 26 pages with images that was to increase in the future. The layout could easily be added to or sections taken away, always keeping the order required.
Sarahjane also went on to create two more catalogues, two order forms and a stock leaflet for print. Using the latest Adobe CC InDesign Sarahjane created the layout and PDF’s for amends and manager comments.
Resizing a layout from an A4 folder into A5 leaflet
Propeller’s Senior Designer had created the basic template in A4. The artwork was to be resized to A5, obviously the font would be too small with a reduced print so a new layout using the existing components had to be created. Once this template was approved, all the other 12 golf course leaflets had to be created, changing the elements for each individual features. This also lead to creating handbooks, flyers, business cards and brochures in-house.
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.
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.
