Wates: A Family Business. I managed this project during a stint working for Profile Editions, the client publishing department of Profile Books. I worked remotely, collaborating with design and editorial specialists, pre-press and print suppliers. Wates’ brand colour was incorporated throughout.

A history of the Wates Group that interweaves the strands of family history, company history, social history and some local context, and pulls out key projects and achievements.

With thanks to Profile Editions for permission to share the images of the finished book.
