Media Directory Entry: Palmer Watson
WE are a small design consultancy based in Edinburgh, Scotland, but with a large international reputation.
Over the past 14 years, our work has earned our clients a whole host of international and national awards, primarily in newspapers but also in magazines.
World-renowned titles such as Le Monde and El País have turned to us to help reinvent their publications. On five occasions our work has been honoured by being named ‘World’s Best Designed Newspapers’ by the prestigious Society for News Design, the most recent being the Danish broadsheet Politiken in 2012.
We have worked with almost 50 different titles, across Europe and in South America, Russia, Africa and India.
Collectively and individually, the team at Palmer Watson has been immersed in the media world for many years, as editors, designers and consultants, working in newspapers, websites and magazines. Like everyone, our focus is increasingly digital (our online involvement dates back ten years howevere) and we have gained valuable recent experience from web and tablet projects.
We remain a small studio, deliberately. We don’t have frontmen or project managers or account executives. If you employ Palmer Watson as consultants then it is us who do the work, every part of it, from initial briefing to training layout staff and overseeing the launch (and very occasionally handing out papers on the street!).
Our philosophy is the same, whatever the publication, whether online, offline or tablet: if you combine compelling content, skilled editing, quality design and smart marketing, you will achieve an audience.
