I have been working as a designer since 1995, with experience in all areas of design for publishing including; pitches, launches, concept development, redesigns, web sites, events and marketing collateral.

I liaise with clients at all levels from MD through
to production providing  concepts, dummies, style guides and templates. I also run workshops about good editorial design for both designers and non-designers. 

I am concerned with creating workable designs that are sensitive to budgets and resources.

Ingrid Shields Design was launched in 2005 and since then I have worked with a wide range of clients in the UK and the rest of Europe.

Previously while working for Belknap+Co, an award winning consultancy that specialises in editorial design
I was responsible for and involved in launches, redesigns and development work for magazines and national newspapers.

Before Belknap+Co I was Group Art Director for Financial Times Business, the magazine publishing arm of the FT. Managing a centralised design team
I was responsible for the creative output for the company which publishes over 14 titles.

Whilst at the FT I attended an in-depth management training course that developed awareness of different management styles, taught team building and motivational techniques.

Before landing in publishing I taught Art and Design in Malaysia, a twinning course with DeMontfort University from where  I graduated in 1993 with
a BA Hons in Graphic Design.
