Meet the digital team, leading the way in cyber innovation and awkward camera poses. We are responsible for online media as well as creating an interactive eBook and audio book for Olalla. It is an incredibly interesting and rewarding team to be in, and we will be exploring digital material that has not been offered by Napier MSc publishing students before.

The happy family! The production team have been hard at work testing designs, creating layouts and having really geeky discussions about sans-serif fonts. They are on the front line of creating our printed books, and have proved themselves an exceptionally talented bunch!

These poor souls are responsible for the project piggy bank, but they are withstanding the pressure admirably! Not only do they divvy up the funds that have been generously donated by The Edward Clark Trust for our sister project The Glorious Thing, they are also currently raising funds for Olalla.
