Design by Dawn Wilson for Publishing, Print & Web
Based in Chiswick, West London
I am a freelance designer providing an affordable, reliable service for individuals and businesses. I believe in clear visual communication and my approach to design is both logical and creative.
Recent projects range from books and magazines, to the creation of websites, logos and brochures. Over the years I have built up a trusted network of contacts in many design, editorial and web-related areas and I am able to call on this pool of expertise as required.
I have over 15 years experience designing websites for clients’ individual needs. Whether it’s a single page website for your new business or a full e-commerce site, I can help.
With a solid background in magazine and book publishing, I can take your publication from initial design layouts through to print-ready pdfs.
At the start of a new design project clients often need a level of rebranding. I can work with you to develop a logo, choose font styles and colour palettes to create your own unique visual identity.
I’ve worked with Dawn for many years – in-house at both Thomson and Scholastic, and more recently turning to Dawn in her freelance capacity to support various educational publishing initiatives at Scholastic UK. In this capacity, Dawn was the lead designer on a range of highly successful four-colour, media tie-in Reader titles. Dawn also steered us through the challenges of designing an effective (and profitable) web site aimed engaging adolescents to learn languages across the world.
Dawn has been a valuable resource both in technical ability and flexibility over the last few years. As a small charity with limited resources, we have been gifted a number of very high profile contributions to our cause, often at short notice. The website is our shop window on the world and Dawn’s work in design and concept has allowed us to maximise the opportunities.
Dawn has designed many books for me over the years and I have always been impressed by her creativity and professionalism. She is an excellent problem solver and has a great eye for detail. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dawn for any design project.
Senior Development Editor
Creative, deadline driven and a great communicator, Dawn is a highly experienced designer who is completely invested in each project she undertakes.
When I needed a website and new marketing collateral for my educational publishing company, I turned to Dawn without hesitation. I knew her well from our time together at Mary Glasgow Magazines, and knew she was a high quality designer with terrific experience and creativity. Dawn has such a friendly and positive working communication style, which meant that ideas and comments could be shared freely and fast to get the job done. I’ve known many designers, and Dawn is one of the very best and a joy to work with.
