I am a self-motivated and versatile graphic designer working at management/director level across print and digital with just shy of 20 years’ professional experience. For the bulk of my career I have taken a ‘nose to tail’ approach to projects, being involved in initial concepts right through to artworking, print management and invoicing.
I work well as a team member but am equally happy tackling projects on an individual basis and have been doing so with private commissions for a number of years.
I have learned a huge amount in my career to date, often in highly-pressured studio environments where timescales and attention to detail have been paramount and have worked in a variety of areas beyond those of a regular designer which I have found invaluable.
The changes I have seen during my time in the industry have seen me taught key ‘hands on’ skills such as air brushing and rub-down lettering through to dealing with HTML 5.0 and Java issues. While there is no doubt I am absolutely immersed in modern technology, I never lose sight of key hand-eye skills I acquired in my early years.
