Versatile professional designer (and illustrator) with plenty of experience and a passion for good design. This energy and enthusiasm is why I have so many happy customers and long-term clients.
After leaving university, I played drums in an indie rock band for a year before spending six months employed as a professional photo retoucher. In spring 2003, I set up my own company and started working for myself, and have never looked back.
I have many specialist skills: highest quality contemporary design and illustration for packaging (such as CD covers, product packaging, shop bags); branding (eg. company stationery, logo design); and marketing (ads, flyers, leaflets, brochures, web banners, etc). I am also a very experienced photo retoucher, and have extensive experience of creative retouching (effects and layering) and cosmetic retouching of products or people. I have produced illustrations for a wide range of media, in an array of styles including vector based illustration.
I have many contacts in the field of design, photography and film production and have worked in conjunction with other designers and creatives on various projects. If an aspect of a brief is outside my scope then I can bring in the talent you need.
Software for design: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Acrobat and Adobe Distiller.
