Diane Davies  

/daıæn deıvıs/ n.


working with design and marketing agencies, arts organisations and publishers.

I proofread presentations and proposal documents, annual reports, literature systems, packaging, brand guidelines, non-fiction books and websites.

I began my career as a designer and I understand the world of design, the deadlines and the need to communicate ideas clearly. Proofreading is a complementary skill. I love the attention to detail, the checking and double-checking, and making sure that details are consistent.

Brigitte Halliday – Creative Director

Indelible Creative

We use Diane to proofread our printed design projects.

She saves us valuable time, has a real eye for detail and we rely on her to spot the errors and inconsistencies that can occur in documents, especially when written or revised by several people.

Diane is also a real professional and a pleasure to work with, no job is too small and work is always delivered on time.

Janine Hall – Founder/Director


I have had the great good luck to work with Diane for many years and always get her in to help me on difficult and complicated projects that need a clear and analytical mind coupled with a determined patience to work through whatever project needs completing to a high standard.

Her experience as a graphic designer has given her an ability to look for and understand the big picture whilst being able to drill down into the detail. Her beady eye picks up on typo errors whilst her brain is always intelligently working to ensure the sense and tone of voice is respected.

Jo Shackleton – Founder

Eighth Day

Diane regularly works with Eighth Day, proofreading and content checking all kinds of projects, including annual reports, brand guidelines and multimedia marketing campaigns. She works as part of our team and is particularly good at checking our design solutions against complex client data. She’s a detail person, easy to work with and reliable.
