Paul Manning DESIGNER / EDITOR FOR PRINT & THE WEB

Graphic design

I work from a studio in my home, using Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat (Creative Cloud versions) and Microsoft Office. My system is Mac-based, but I have no problem working with non-Mac file formats.

For print projects, I offer:

  • Creative design
  • Editing and copywriting
  • General typesetting and page-make-up
  • Design of graphics, diagrams and maps
  • Picture research
  • Artwork commissioning
  • Budgeting, scheduling and project management
  • Print-buying and print-handling

As a freelancer, I’ve built up a good network of contacts with artists, writers, photographers and illustrators who I can call on when needed. Some clients also ask me to handle print on their behalf, and I regularly place work with printers in the UK and abroad.
