By keeping it simple, I approach design by looking for the obvious truth
I've been focused on UI and UX long before they had acronyms
I also have a background in studio and production management
By keeping it simple, I approach design in a logical way. The key is to understand you and your Clients. Your needs, your habits, your requirements. With an eye on the current fashion, I use this understanding to breath life into your brand. Whether it’s looking at a complete Corporate ID or just revising your existing literature, you can be assured the design solution will work as hard as you do
I've been focused on UI and UX long before they had acronyms. For me, web design has always been about the journey, so whether its a full site, based on the brands values and identity, or a micro site to breath interaction into a campaign, I have always designed with the user in mind. However, I'm a designer not a code monkey. I have an understanding of HTML, CSS and JQUERY and i'm happy developing sites using these technologies
Bringing a design to life is a skill in itself. Whether it's using illustrator or photoshop, I have experience of bringing ideas to life, creating virtual somethings from virtually nothing. So if you need a robot made up from spare engineering parts or just need to see the creative in a real world setting, I have experience in delivering high quality finished visuals for both web and print
I have managed every type of marketing project you can imagine. Working with a range of Agencies, in the roles of Production/Project Manager, I have managed most types of projects for some very demanding Clients and Creative Directors. Project management contracts have included Goodyear Dunlop, managing all their printed material throughout Europe, Marshalls Plc, producing all marketing materials used for both B2C and B2B
I love working with a client from the very start. One of the most important skills I have is the ability to take a wish list and create a creative brief.
Whether it's starting from a clean sheet, or creative to fit within a current Brand ID or campaign, I have the experience to deliver.
Once the scamps and design has been approved, it's time to make it real. I can deliver whether it's finished artwork for print or building websites.
Time to ensure the end product is all it can be. Working with you to test and amend final websites or work with your printers to deliver the best.
It's my favorite way to spend a lazy sunday afternoon. Only one issue with this hobby. I need to have worked the hours, before I can do the invoicing.
Whether it's a road trip across Europe, a weekend drive in Wales, the daily commute or watching motor sport at home, I love everything car.
Recently I have rediscovered the joy of pencils and pens. After ignoring the pencil case since art college, it has been great to start again.
Curling up on the sofa watching a move, or sitting in the pub watching a band, chilling out after work is almost as important as getting the job done.
