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.
Print deadlines all seem to arrive very quickly for clients. Sarahjane was hired to artwork layouts, adding in text and images. Working closely with Project Manager and Senior Designer. Making client amends using PDF sticky notes and creating print ready PDFs.
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.
Graphic Designer’s involved in publishing hire Sarahjane from time to time to help out when they are busy designing. Involved layout that consist of times, dates and places requires a your full attention especially in a ‘What’s On Guide’.
Sarahjane was asked to help out with local magazine Seaford Scene and Eastbourne Old Town Criers. She is highly organised and thoroughly enjoys the challenge. Using style sheets in InDesign to make the design consistent and quicker to layout.
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.
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.
It is great to work at a printers to see where the print ready artwork goes. Creating posters from huge spreadsheets, quickly collating images, prices and T&Cs. Working with great images ready for printing on these POS poster. Branding is simple, using styles for consistency.
