Repeat visitors to my website and regular readers of this blog may have noticed a change recently. Yes – I have a brand new logo and a bright new orange colour scheme! In this blog, I’ll explain some of my reasons for this, my experiences of rebranding and why I think I was at the right stage to do it.

Ask any freelancer, be it editorial or another profession, and they will tell you how hard it can be. But they’ll tell you as many reasons for going freelance.

We’ll look back at 2020 and decide that it was a year that changed a lot of things for a lot of people. Inspired by some of my fellow editors, here’s a review of my year.
