Deloitte GAAP and iGAAP titles
Cover design and promotional material for the Deloitte GAAP and iGAAP accounting titles. For the 2014 titles I created a series of illustrations of the UK and the world. The Illustrations were created using a mix of acrylic paint, ink and gouache on board, these were then photographed and enhanced in photoshop before being applied to the covers. I was involved with the design and marketing of this series from 2010 to 2014.

LexisNexis Catalogue
The print and online product catalogue for LexisNexis. The theme for this years catalogue was to highlight the charity work undertaken by LexisNexis as part of the wider Reed Elsevier RE Cares global community programme. This was the first material for the UK produced employing a new set of global brand guidelines.
Three versions of the catalogue (UK, trade and overseas) were produced from a single artwork using a combination of spot colours and plate changes on press. Interactive pdf versions were distributed online and via usb memory sticks. A landing page was created to link through to the online product database.
