'Scarily simple and minimal portfolio website to showcase my projects' was the brief from fine art landscape photographer Tim Simmons. "The design is extremely simple but it meets the clients brief - letting the images do the talking – essentially we wanted something that didnt get in the way of Tim's great photos, whilst having something of an 'art gallery' feel - so it ws all about adding the lightest of touches" said Smith designer Paul Oldman.

Smith re-designs NUA alumni magazine

2018-01-01

-

Beyond – the Norwich School of Arts alumni magazine has just been published. Our graphic design agency won a five-way pitch to redesign the magazine – taking it from a A5 booklet to an oversize A4 high-end journal format. Published once a year, Beyond has been reworked as part of an ongoing initiative to better engage the college's alumni base. Drawing on Smith's multi-award-winning experience in magazine design and alumni communications with Cambridge University and Aiglon College Switzerland, Smith was chosen to rethink the editorial in order to appeal to a wider age range whilst also improving Beyond's design values.

Working within NUA's design guidelines, Smith then designed and art directed the first issue - colabrating solely with NUA's current students and recent alumni. The magazine was produced as part of a wider project which included the redesign of the Alumni Development Dept's marketiong communications including the redesign of their e-newsletter to alumni and the Marketing Dept's e-shots - creating customisable and easy-to-use templates on MailChimp's email platform.
