Exeter’s Hidden Gems workshop is a project that is transforming lives and I’m honoured to have written about it for the January 2020 issue of Exeter Life. Have a read here.
One of the features I have in the January 2020 edition of Exeter Life is a piece on the newly opened Exeter Craft Hub, where I discover the communal creative craft space the city has been missing. Read my article here.
Exeter’s Jenny Cahill lives by an impressive mantra of Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Rot and is getting continuously closer to a zero waste lifestyle. She’s become affectionately known as a ‘real life womble’ – I interviewed her for Exeter Life magazine recently and found her to be truly inspiring. If you’re looking for ways to reduce the waste you create, Jenny shares lots of advice with me in the feature below.
I had my first feature published in Exeter Life last month, where I met an inspirational mother from Exeter who is championing luxe interiors that don’t cost the earth – have a read below. As a side note, I was thrilled to see my photograph of Faye breastfeeding her son while working was used as a whole page – fantastic that Exeter Living are doing their bit to help normalise breastfeeding.
I’m excited to share that I have a new Exeter-based client, The Nail Room. I’ve been working with the new boutique nail salon on their PR, marketing and social media strategies, since they opened earlier this year. I’ve enjoyed doing everything from generating media coverage and arranging press trips and competitions through to videography, photography and design work.
For the past three months I’ve been working with independent Jewellery store chain, Polkadot Gallery implementing new social media, marketing and PR strategies, as well as training a media apprentice. I’ve also built the gallery a new eCommerce website, which launched yesterday – you can see it here (WARNING: You may be tempted to buy amazing, hand forged jewellery). I’m pleased to say that I’ll continue to work with Polkadot Gallery as their freelance media, marketing and eCommerce manager.
I’m happy to have my feature ‘Brewing A Storm’ on The Exeter Brewery published in this month’s Devon Life magazine. It was an interesting piece to write and photograph – I discovered that The Exeter Brewery’s organic real ale is so popular it’s exported to France via sail boat and rebranded for the Army!
Over the last three months I’ve been working with One Media, who are based in Woodbury, Devon, redesigning their popular monthly lifestyle magazine, One Magazine.
One Magazine has five local editions, covering Exeter, Exmouth, West Devon and East Devon and is delivered to 100,000 homes each month.
Under my editorship, the redesign has included a new masthead and full graphic design facelift, new sections and navigation.
The magazine now has great feature content including a news section, 15 minute interviews with people of local interest, new food section to include restaurant reviews and an outdoors section, which includes glorious local walks and great days out.
Here are some sample spreads:
