Whence the name? On my first visit to Beijing I worked on an illegal magazine run out of an apartment in a diplomatic compound. I needed a Chinese business card and my colleagues decided to rename me ‘Lin Si’, which sounds a little like my name,  Lynne Stuart. The Chinese characters in the red stamp mean ‘forest’ and ‘thought’ or ‘idea’.

Idea in a forest is all about using visual communications to make your message clearer. I have extensive experience working with a diverse range of clients to run projects from conceptualisation to production, within a team or on my own to produce high quality effective visual outputs.

I collaborate with teams to design and produce print assets, short films and websites. Clients are a wide range of people with interesting projects including civil-society organisations, academic researchers, human rights defenders and poets.

With thanks to Stefan and Olaf Dunn for developing the idea in a forest theme and making this site and to Dirk Meerkotter for firefighting and updates.
