As a recently formed company, there are not a lot of projects that we have worked on as Saraswati. The contents of this portfolio represent the various work carried out by our team members over the last two years or so. The work contained in this section has been primarily worked on by three of our team.

Our Executive Director, Iain Donnelly, is an accomplished writer and editor with three novels to his name and two more due out over the course of 2017.

He was previously a writer with The Advisor magazine here in Phnom Penh, before becoming Editor and Chief Writer for The Weekly Magazine (part of The Khmer Times) from issues 3 to 17. He then moved to the position of Managing Editor for three magazines; European Auto Asia, Banking & Finance Cambodia, and Travel & Tourism Guide Cambodia.

As part of his duties for the publisher of these three magazines, he has also been involved in the writing and editing for multiple corporate projects including annual reports for a leading bank, advertising campaigns, and marketing material for Royal Railway and other companies. This folder contains various examples of Iain’s writing style which he can adapt to any needs.

Hamid Saatchi is our Head Designer and brings many years’ experience to the team. Educated in Dubai and Iran, Hamid has worked at the top level of design for several years and includes time with Saint Blanquat and at Management Insider on his resume.

More recently he has worked with Iain to bring the acclaimed first issue of Banking & Finance Cambodia out and is currently working freelance as well as being part of the Saraswati Team. Hamid has also worked on several advertising and marketing campaigns and, other than the two issues of European Auto Asia, all design and layout work, including the book covers and the Saraswati logo, came from this highly talented designer.
