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.
Oct 2014: 20 page A4 newsletter for the University of Oxford’s Physics Department. The design was done using the same styles as the Spring issue, and I also helped with copyediting and proofreading.
Oct 2014: I recently completed design of the University of Oxford Faculty of Classics newsletter. The Faculty of Classics was a new client for me this year. They liked the Physics newsletter that I designed and asked for something in a similar vein. Being very different in content and character, I drew on elements from the style of the Physics newsletter, but created a different pace and mood in the Classics newsletter. The design is based on two grids which could be adapted to fit the content for each spread. The result is a clean, calm, newsletter which I think fits the nature of the content.
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 – Very pleased to announce that I recently secured a contract to design the annual newsletter for the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Classics. Very excited and looking forward to working with the Faculty of Classics! The c.24 page newsletter will be printed by Oxuniprint and mailed with the University’s main alumni magazine, Oxford Today, in September. Busy times ahead!
June 2014 – Oxford University’s Department of Continuing Education asked me to design a flyer for their “Wisdom Weekend” – with a quick turnaround.
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.
June 2014 – The Oxford Experience Leaflet: A3 folding to DL. I did the image research and print buying for this leaflet. Printed on 100% recycled paper by Park Lane Press.
