‘What’s On’ guides for Royal Museums Greenwich

About this project

Compiling, writing, editing and project managing a quarterly 'What's On' guide, promoting the Greenwich venues and their exhibitions, events and programmes. I was instrumental in the development of these guides bringing coherence to the museums and their offer; they have become a headline piece of print for RMG, showcasing the sites to a wide range of audiences and thus pushing ticket sales and visitor figures. I was solely responsible for collating and re-writing all listings content, writing marketing copy for all areas of the museums' offer, and bringing cohesion to a complex and wide-ranging piece of print. I managed the entire design and print process, balancing internal requirements and customer usability and turning the print around to tight deadlines every three months.
