Rory's talents bring papers to life
Graphic designer Rory Eade is helping to bring Ocean Advertiser's publications to life in Perth, thanks to Disability Works Australia.
Mr Eade is responsible for working with clients to design their advertisements and business stationery.
He joined the company in January 2005, at the same time as its first edition, and has been an important part of the growth of the Ocean Advertiser.
The privately owned publisher initially launched its Wanneroo Coastal publication, which was followed by Joondalup Central in August. The company also designs and prints a wide range of business stationery. Other publications include a quarterly business-to-business supplement and the Short Stories Australia book.
DWA's role included advertising the position for Ocean Advertiser, pre-screening applicants and organising three months' work experience for Mr Eade, which was supported by his disability agency, CRS Australia.
Maree Jones, DWA State Manager in WA, said Ocean Advertiser was then happy to employ Mr Eade in a part-time position, which has now become full time.
"Rory settled into the position immediately and has been a perfect fit," Ms Jones said. "His attention to detail, creativity and commitment to his craft has enabled Ocean Advertiser to rapidly expand in its first year."
Mr Eade is also an accomplished artist and is planning to write a children's book.
