Company Newsletter for WJ Groundwater

Communication is essential, especially when you’re a globally developing company. Just how do you keep your colleagues up-to-date on all the big projects and events going on?

WJ Groundwater commissioned Windsor Copywriting for editorial and myself for the design to develop a template for a bi-annual in-house magazine called The Wet End that would be printed and distributed to all their employees across the world.


The Wet End - WJ Groundwater's Company Newsletter

The Wet End showcases internal international project updates from WJ's offices across the globe, as well as special features on colleagues, events and company information.

Mid 2015 I re-designed the current look a the time (left) to bring it inline with a rebrand that the company had done. The new design (right) shows the new brand layout implemented into The Wet End. While the magazine retained its unique look and feel, it features new styles, headers & footers as well as updated fonts.

Chris Hird Design assisted me when I was contracted to develop a company magazine for a large international engineering company. I found him to be diligent, hardworking, adaptable, and most importantly reliable. If you are a freelance copywriter looking to team up with a designer then Chris is your man. We worked together for three years on this project.

Issue 29 Inside double-page spread

I wanted to create a visually engaging layout that brought together key pieces of information together, yet dynamic enough to give each article its own identity while keeping on-brand.
