Nyrstar are the market-leaders in zinc and lead mining/smelting, with growing positions in other base and precious metals. One of our most regular projects for them at Tanc has been StarNews — a 20-page corporate newsletter, which we’ve produced 6 issues of, in 4 languages (English, French, Dutch and Spanish).

I took care of most of the design and layout work, as well as project-managing more recent issues. A fast turn-around was often required, with text-amends right up until the deadline — definitely a good way of building copy-fitting skills considering all of those long Dutch words.
