New challenges

I went freelance 18 months ago and also became a dad to twin boys, so I’m used to spending a lot of time at home, but lockdown created new challenges, like how to convert the summer issue of a retail client’s print magazine to digital, as their stores were shut. 

With some invaluable help from a colleague, I nailed it and produced something that I’m really proud of – the client said it was their best ever edition. I might even show it to my boys, after I’ve finished reading them The Very Hungry Caterpillar for the eighth time today.
