Employment

Franklin Medhurst

Location:

N/A

This was a piece of freelance work that I did for Franklin Medhurst, a local author who wrote "A Quiet Catastrophe: The Teesside Job". He has now written a series of books called War and Liberty, which will be published as E-Books on Amazon later this year. These books describe Franklin's experiences of being in World War 2 working in the RAF.

Recommendations:

Lisa McGrath designed for me at short notice three highly imaginative covers for the three parts of my book 'War and Liberty'. She used design and colour brilliantly and incorporated the message creatively, at short notice. The covers are beyond any concept that I could have and will undoubtedly help the sales of the book. At the commissioning stage I gave her the briefest of details because I wanted to give her creativity full play. This has worked extremely well. Franklin Medhurst.
