Website and Email Newsletters
While working for DC Thomson Family History (now called Find My Past Ltd) from September 2011 to July 2014 and from April 2016 to September 2016, I planned, wrote, built and sent out a monthly email newsletter to the 1 million+ subscribers to the ScotlandsPeople website.

From September 2011 to January 2014, I planned, wrote and built a monthly newsletter for the British Newspaper Archive project.

If required, I can provide print copies of all the newsletters that I wrote, designed and built for the British Newspaper Archive and ScotlandsPeople website. newsletters
This is the front page of an e-business newsletter that I wrote for Sage customers in 2001. As with all of the web team's projects, working on this newsletter involved teamworking with the Information Architect, Graphic Designer and Web Developers.

The 'Viewpoints!' newsletter formed part of the E-business Club that Sage organised for its customers. (And, yes, during this project our information design team was working while heavily under the intoxicating, musey influence of Hello! magazine.)
