The Yellow Book - local business directory

The Yellow Book was a series of local business directories covering towns in Devon and Somerset. It was delivered free to every household in the relevant areas, and was used as a means for local businesses to promote their services. Working in association with Talking Pictures, a North Devon-based graphic design studio, Julian Tewkesbury was sole designer for The Yellow Book for three years to 2003.

The directories had to be turned round at speed. Many of the adverts were very simple, text-based blocks. However, logos were often supplied on letterheads etc., which required reconstructing on computer to gain acceptable image quality. Most of the photographs required substantial attention to ensure that The Yellow Book presented a high quality profile for itself and its advertisers.
