I'm Jeff Stewart
As Message Design, I write, edit, design and produce corporate communications: printed brochures, email newsletters, small websites, presentations, infographics and even entire magazines.
I've been in this business for 25 years, working mainly with financial services companies, funds, publishers and pharmaceutical companies.
I write, design and produce marketing materials
I start from a detailed discussion so that I can understand your offer – and your audience. Then I write concise, engaging content. I wrap it in clean, accessible design. And I produce the finished materials.
At all times, my focus is on communicating your message by engaging your clients in what you have to say.
I deliver your message quickly and clearly, in a style and a tone of voice that build your brand.
Saving you time
My ability to write, design and proofread detailed newsletters, pithy factsheets and stand-out emails – and then to make quick, accurate edits – saves my clients time. And they don't need to employ a design agency plus a corporate writer, or worry about spelling mistakes and punctuation errors creeping into their materials.
Delivering your message
With Message Design you can be sure all aspects of your collateral are working in harmony to deliver your message, through a tone of voice and a design style that reflect your brand values and communicate clearly.
In print, online and via the apps you use
I have the technical skills to deliver your message in a format that works for you and your clients.
I've worked as Message Design, writing, designing and learning new skills for 25 years.
My recent and current clients include multinational alternatives administrator Citco, investment manager Tatton, financial publisher Acuris and pharma company SEP. For Citco, I write, edit and design industry newsletters, services flyers, marketing emails and conference banners. For Tatton, I have produced investor brochures, fund fact sheets and web sites. For Acuris, I act as designer, art editor, sub editor and graphics/chart designer on their monthly structured credit newsletter Creditflux.
After university I studied journalism and worked as a freelance journalist and sub-editor on titles including Accountancy Age, Financial Director, the Times Educational Supplement, Manchester United Magazine and PC Active.
I have a degree in philosophy from Cambridge University.
My A-levels are in maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
