Ernest Journal, Issue 7
“Ernest is a blog and biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk… It is for people who like to whittle.”
I have been the house-designer at this independently published and award winning blog and magazine since issue 5, published summer 2016. Working with the small team, I create page layouts and illustrations for features and partnership pages, conduct picture research and commission and brief photographers and illustrators and art-check spreads before going to press. I also create collateral materials such as media-packs, greetings cards, calendars and images for online and social media.
Before sketching an idea, I’ll dive into the author’s words, seek further guidance and conduct research, working with the art director and testing different approaches and treatments with the team to provide a clear and engaging narrative for the constantly growing national and international audience.
