My role:


Scottie Press is, as it says at the top of the page, Britain's longest-running community newspaper. It's been going since 1971 - that's even longer than I've been here and I'm knackered. I was a bit nervous about redesigning something with so much heritage and significance, but mostly I was just very pleased to be asked. I tried to bring back some of the best bits from the paper's history - small illustrations, a formal layout and a proper newspaper masthead - while remaining aware that this isn't a museum piece, it's a real newspaper which needs to be taken seriously and enjoyed in 2020 and beyond. So far, the new look has been well-received by the readership, which is great news for me and should hopefully give the Scottie Press team a great new platform for the stories they want to tell.
