Some more of my weekly Sunday Telegraph Money section covers. The turnaround's usually a few hours; I've developed a good relationship with the commissioning editors who are generally quite frazzled putting Saturday's edition to bed. This one's on dependable funds that regularly issue high dividends. Rudimentary roughs include the hoary old production line golden goose
I get a little carried away and, occasionally, waiting for approval work up several iterations, a testament to how much I still enjoy the job
roughs for the above on the theme of parents pushing their offspring onto the precarious housing ladder

So called Cash Machine companies

A bird in the hand... A pensions story about whether it's better to cash in one's pensions pot or wait

Credit card fees still being imposed on consumers

Cuts in life cover (withdrawal of safety nets)
calculating how much one can withdraw from pensions funds

customer loyalty unrewarded


My regular Telegraph money cover- This one comes in on Thursday evenings and generally needs doing by Friday for publication on Sunday. Of course the issue this week was the EU Referendum. I produced these two plus to cover both outcomes plus a quick alternative on the Friday (below). The missing star version was the one they went with. Possibly a little understated given the dramatic result.
roughs and an alternative (post-result) final

Per Nørgård for the New Yorker

A recent portrait of Finnish composer, Per Nørgård, for AD Deanna Donegan at the New Yorker


Another piece for WSJ (AD, Orlie Kraus) on 529 college funds. As with the Bears piece, I was tiptoeing around the more hackneyed metaphors in my initial responses (here a piggy bank. With a mortarboard) before Ms Kraus gave me permission to embrace the cliche. Which I did with aplomb. The companion piece was for an article on the so-called Summer Rally where stock prices supposedly enjoy a seasonal upsurge.
