The Listing Magazine
Publishing Assistant | Oct 2015 | Aug 2017
Whilst working for The Listing Magazine as a publishing assistant, I was given a variety of tasks to help the team produce a monthly magazine for the residents of Royston & its surrounding villages.
My main task was to create a monthly What's On guide for inside the magazine and online. The What's On guide was a list of events in the month in the local area. Alongside the What's On guide inside the magazine, I would also create separate guides for the different seasons - for example when the summer holidays rolled round, I would create a Free Summer Fun Guide for families in the area.
Another task was to update or create brand new adverts for our customers in the magazine.
Updating adverts: some adverts such as Body Balance would change each month with fitness tips. Each month I would re design the advert with tips to reconcile with the month of the magazine (e.g. July's issue would feature a cycling tip to link with the Tour de France).
Creating new adverts: a client would require artwork for their advert, they would list what they wanted on there and how they would like it to look. I would create a first draft, get it sent back to the advertiser and make any changes to make it perfect for the magazine and most importantly, the client.

Royston Picture Palace
Design & Content | Jun 2016 | Aug 2017
The Royston Picture Palace is a local community cinema in the town. As part of my role at The Listing Magazine, I was given the task of creating a cinema listing leaflet each month showing what films were coming up for the current month and the month after.
As well as this, I would also create A1 posters to go outside the cinema each month to show the current listings. I was also in charge of the social media accounts (Facebook & Twitter) throughout this time to promote the films and sell tickets.
The content which was inside each leaflet and each poster was sent to us from the cinema manager. We would receive the film's details and it would be up to my boss and I to choose a suitable film still to go alongside the film. If we were unable to find an image, I would create a basic text stand in instead (as you can see on the left for the films Sing & Lion).
All products from this task were created on InDesign.
