One of the best things about writing is seeing how your words get transformed by brilliant design. Words are great, but I'm driven by visuals and love seeing beautiful imagery with an article- it just makes the experience much more visceral.
With this in mind I wanted to quickly show you two recent pieces of work I've had published and the brilliant job that was done with the design/imagery.
First up is Cellardoor. Stunning imagery is at the heart of this magazine, and I love it when my short stories get paired with illustrations. Here's the magazine in full, my story ('Finding the Warmth') is on page 109...take a peek....
Next up is Think Local, remember me excitingly showing you my first printed article here? Well this is my third article for the mag and I'm really quite proud of it. It has been split into two parts and looks at Fashion's 'ones to watch'- this month: blogs and magazines. Read the article here.
I just love the design of it
So I just wanted to take my hat off to all you clever design types and illustrators- you make writers like me look good ;)
