About Newscraft

Newscraft is a media business run by Tim Dixon. He is a journalist who, during 37 years in publishing, has been fortunate to work in the newsrooms of some of Britain’s leading regional newspapers.

Newscraft, which was launched in 2015, provides help with all sorts of publishing jobs – from the production of community newspapers and magazines, company newsletters, souvenir publications, leaflets, pamphlets, event programmes and promotional free sheets through to the delivery of major newspaper redesign and relaunch projects.

Tim trained as a news reporter and feature writer on the Eastern Daily Press, one of Britain’s biggest regional morning titles, based in Norwich. He was a sub-editor on the Leicester Mercury and after that was design editor and picture editor on the Nottingham Evening Post.

Later he became deputy editor of the Express & Echo in Exeter and then edited the famous Western Gazette in Somerset and Dorset. He went on to be editor of the Western Daily Press, the Bristol-based regional morning newspaper covering six counties in the West of England.

Tim has led several high-profile newspaper redesign projects. In 2016 he redesigned two of London’s oldest newspapers, the iconic South London Press and  the Greenwich Mercury. Most recently he redesigned and helped relaunch the West Country’s Sunday Independent – and has just completed a redesign of the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian. He also created new looks for the Western Daily Press, Western Morning News and Derby Evening Telegraph in 2010. And he redesigned the Western Gazette in 2009, the Express & Echo in 2007 and the Nottingham Evening Post in 1996.

He has extensive free newspaper experience, having been managing editor of the independent Star Newspaper Group in Somerset, Devon and Dorset in the late 1980s.
