Overview

Technical Skills:

I also have experience with Dreamweaver, Flash, Premiere, After Effects and Final Cut Pro for animation and video work. I have recently been working a lot with Wordpress, designing and building websites.

My BA Degree includes a sub-major in photography, and have facilities to shoot product photography. I also do illustration, both on computer and by hand.

Design:
I have been working as a graphic designer since 1990, and have been working freelance since 1999. I do freelance work  from my own studio, and also work onsite when a client requires it. I have worked on a wide variety of design projects, including brand launches, point of sale, skateboards, online and websites, retail stores, packaging, social media campaigns, logos and identity and brochures. I have also worked at a wide variety of agencies on a freelance basis, please see the employment section for more information.

Project Management:
I have been running my own business since around 2006, dealing with clients, quoting jobs, managing contractors, setting budgets, presenting concepts and taking briefs and everything else involved in running a small company. I believe this has taught me to be more versatile and have a broader knowledge of how an agency works and what a client requires.

Along with my design skills, I have also worked as a finished artist, with my strengths being packaging and point of sale. I have produced finished art for flexo, litho, digital, screen and gravure printing, and i'm experienced in liaison with printers.

Photography:
I have the facilities to shoot products and portraits in my home studio, and have the necessary lighting equipment.

Illustration:
I have done quite a bit of illustration work, by hand, rendered in photoshop and a mixture of both. I enjoy trying out different media and applying it to my design work.

Retail:
I recently returned to the UK and set up a skateboard shop from scratch. This involved branding, social media campaigns, setting up a website for online sales, POS, merchandising, buying stock and many different types of promotional methods specific to the skateboard industry. I had a shop team of 7 skateboarders with whom we did promotional trips and videos.
