Client: Merton College

Project: Postmaster & The Merton Record

Postmaster is Merton College's flagship annual publication. Its 250 pages cover the last 12 months of life in college. It covers everything from academic achievements to sports results, new appointments to news from old members and articles from Mertonians worldwide.

Postmaster used to be a black and white publication that Merton produced internally. They wanted to transform it into a full colour, professionally produced publication, and B&M were selected to make this happen.

The difference is profound, with Postmaster becoming a colourful and engaging publication that brings the previous year to life. Large images, colour-indexed sections and a greater focus on typography and design have made Postmaster the crown jewel of college records within the University.

B&M has produced this publication for Merton College for the past nine years. Our experience and production processes mean we can make light work of the formatting and layouts, saving many hours and passing these savings back to the client. Leveraging the power of InDesign, we deliver Postmaster with fewer proofs, faster turnaround times and a streamlined process that makes life quicker and easier for all involved.
