I love helping small businesses with their design and marketing as they begin on their new journey.

This brief was to design an initial 4-page A5 rate card and website for a local directory in Shetland called The Shetland Handbook. Because this was a new speculative venture, the costs needed to be kept low while the client established the project from concept to first issue and a basic initial online presence.

Update: The Shetland Handbook has now ended publication due to the relocation of the owner to mainland Britain.
