“Sarah is an absolute dream to work with. She is so multitalented that there is no aspect to a project that I wouldn’t trust Sarah to excel at. She is both a fantastic communicator and self-starter, meaning that she requires very little input and direction to deliver a project to a very high standard, constantly updating along the way to ensure things are on track. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking to work with her, whilst also secretly wanting to keep her for ourselves ;)”
– Alice Dorrington, Digital Ethics team co-ordinator, Lush

I was commissioned to work as Editor for Project Calm issue 12 and 13 (pictured), covering Lara Watson’s maternity leave. I was given a great deal of creative freedom with this issue, from the themes we included to the illustrators we commissioned, which was an absolute dream. Inside you'll find a celebration of hugely talented people, beautiful art, inspiring places, interesting features and hand-crafted items from independent makers.

Before setting up Gane Industries, I was in charge of the Marketing Editorial team at docrafts. This also involved working as Editor for its monthly self-published magazine Creativity. During my time at the company, I oversaw and signed off all editorial content: everything from feature article commissions, craft projects, the monthly magazine Creativity, annual/seasonal/export catalogues, booklets and any other editorial content produced by our department. My job also required me to commission and/or create content myself, while training, mentoring and supporting my direct reports to bring their skills up to industry standard.

I, together with the Marketing Design Manager Carly Stalker, art directed and styled all shoots for the magazine, catalogues, booklets, kits and any other projects that came our way. Here’s a small selection of the vast array of projects Carly and I worked on.
