BRIEF: To work closely alongside the editor to produce the magazine, to deadline, monthly.
I have been working on theHRDIRECTOR magazine since it was founded back in 2003, the magazine has been through a few redesigns over the years to keep it looking fresh and ahead of its competitors in terms of content and layout.
"Emily is a terrific designer and I have now been using her fabulous creative skills for over 15 years. She produces cutting edge design from brief and always delivers. Through her company 8FOOT3, she designs and creates the artwork for our monthly national publication 'theHRDIRECTOR' and has done so since its inception in 2003 and continues to keep it looking fresh and highly professional for our Senior HR readership. She has also designed many of our online mediums including our present website www.thehrdirector.com.
I also use Emily's expertise on various projects for my design consultancy as she is able to work on a diverse range of briefs across all sectors and delivers at an exceptional end product across all mediums which is always good value for money."
Peter Banks, Founder & Managing Director - theHRDIRECTOR
"I have worked with Emily on theHRDIRECTOR publication for ten years. Throughout that time, we have never had a cross word and I wholeheartedly respect and rely upon her integrity and attention-to-detail, which has been immensely supportive, and has been a major contribution to the success of the magazine and its consistent high quality. I don't see Emily as a freelance designer, more a trusted colleague and friend, whom I know will never let me down."

BRIEF: To create a brochure to compliment the nature of the product - Tracklements have been hand making an award-winning range of over 60 products, all handmade in small batches using traditional methods and using the best ingredients. They wanted the brochure to reflect the nature of the product, homemade and traditional. Once the print design was finalised the style was then applied across the Tracklements website.
"I just wanted to say thank you for the great service we have received on the occasions we have used your services. Emily at 8FOOT3 Creative Design is brilliant and incredibly helpful. Whilst designing our product leaflets she went out of her way to make sure it was exactly what we wanted it to be. Would recommend to the highest degree. Thanks again, Tracklements".
