Feb 2015: Things have been crazy busy here at Catherine Charnock Creative! Hot off the press is the Oxfordshire Science Festival’s 2015 booklet (see below): 25000 copies printed and distributed throughout Oxfordshire. The Festival is packed full of fascinating events – don’t miss it!
We decided to change the design format for this year, opting for a 24 page A5 self cover booklet. See previous year’s flyer designs and poster designs here. The cover images have come out really well – very vibrant colour! Catherine Charnock Creative handled the design from concept to delivery, designed the “Ox-On!” logo and drew the fun doodles inside. This was the ultimate in fun design: have a look!
Nov 2014: Two profile books (20 pages and 60 pages) for the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Law. The project was carried out in three stages: the preliminary design stage, where the files were set up and the styles agreed; then inputting the text, which was only available once the students had been accepted onto the courses; and finally the student photos, which were taken by a professional photographer at the start of term. The books can be viewed on the Law Faculty’s website, here:
Nov 2014: 80 page conference programme book for the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s annual conference, which was held in collaboration with the Dutch Society of Gene and Cell Therapy in October 2014. The A5 book contains the full conference programme and also a shorter programme at a glance, as well as information about sponsors and their advertisements, and visiting The Hague. This project is a technical challenge, as the book contains a lot of cross-references and there are changes to the programme right up until the last minute. It was printed on FSC certified paper, with a gloss laminated outer cover and perfect binding.
Aug 2014: Just published: 8 page 210mm square brochure for the Social Mobility Foundation. The SMF wanted a professional looking brochure that they can send to businesses with whom they work. I did the print buying for the project, which was printed on a beautiful, 100% recycled uncoated stock. The brochure was designed using the SMF’s colours, to be in keeping with the SMF’s Annual Review, and the Parent and Carers’ Guide but with a more corporate feel.
You can download the brochure here, or view it onscreen below.
July 2014 – I recently completed Earthwatch’s 2013 Annual Review. It is a 24 page A4 publication, digitally printed by Seacourt Press. I provided design and proofreading services, and also created a portrait version customised for viewing on an iPad. The colours and hexagon shape reflect the Earthwatch brand.
May 2014: I recently completed the fourth annual Physics Newsletter. Having had a similar design for three years, we decided to freshen the look and feel for the fourth edition, creating a more “magazine style” newsletter. I changed the grid structure to allow for more white space on the page, and designed a magazine-style cover. I also updated the colour palette, while maintaining the Department’s main colour brand.

An 8 page A5 Guide for the Social Mobility Foundation. I designed the first Guide and then versioned it for a different aspect of their Programme, producing two Guides. The style was in keeping with their Annual Review and Employers’ Guide.
Apr 2014: 12 page brochure for the University of Oxford Physics Dept. We kept the same overall design as the previous year, just updating the students’ photos and quotes. The helped to keep the overall project cost low. Once again I used Photoshop filters to produce some nice image overlays. The brochure was printed on 100% recycled, FSC certified paper.
Apr 14: The European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy needed a publicity document that they could send by email to present and prospective members, as well as sponsors and advertisers.
I chose a shape that would be easily viewed on screens, tablets and hand held devices, limiting the text on each screen for maximum legibility and impact.
The vector drawings (grey and yellow watermarks) are ones that I created as part of the ESGCT brand.
The document also makes for a good powerpoint presentation.
