About me

Are you having issues with documents going to print or on the web
RGB and CMYK colours all mixed up and not looking consistent
Text in different sizes and not lining up properly
Not enough or no bleed on your pages or resolution of images too low

I'm a proficient senior artworker with over 25 years experience who has a keen eye for detail, Self motivated, highly organised and work quickly to solve problems. Keeping your artwork consistent using the project's branding guidelines. I enjoy working in various locations with many types of agencies and companies.

I like doing the technical stuff like pre document setup, which is the foundations of an InDesign document. Master pages for folios, adding styles for text and images, tables and footnotes. Ready for the designers to add their creative flare. By doing all the technical bits first, this leaves time for those tiny last minute amends before it goes out to the printers.

Re-branding and making your artwork print and digital-ready can seem pretty tedious. Being highly organised I can work on your documents quickly and efficiently, with attention to detail to can keep your artwork consistent. Using InDesign and Word for your more text heavy reports.
With excellent skills in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, I create print-ready and digital artwork and interactive Adobe PDFs while keeping your design accurate, consistent and within brand guidelines. I edit and retouch images using Photoshop and recreate icons and logos using Illustrator. I regularly assist graphic designers, art directors and account managers in and around London.

I also work remotely using the most up-to-date Adobe Creative Cloud and Microsoft Office to create professional looking documents.
