About me

Hello, and thanks for looking at my profile!

I'm a Senior Graphic Designer with 20 years experience. In 2009 I went freelance which has allowed me to work for a wide range of clients within different sectors. I'm open to freelancing opportunities but also semi-perm, short-term contracts, working on a retainer, fixed term contract and stand-alone-projects. Ideally, it would be great to work with like-minded clients and creatives who appreciate well crafted and considered graphic design. I love design, branding, illustration, motion graphics and typography and strive to inject personality and distinctiveness into my projects. I enjoy working with other professionals or independently, and have a genuine desire to create effective and engaging work.

As a freelance designer I've supported design, marketing and advertising agencies as a reliable freelance resource, assisting in their creative design/artwork requirements. I am flexible working onsite or remotely.

I also work directly with businesses ranging from local start-ups, to international companies who own iconic brands. Since working independently I have been able to strengthen and develop my skills in:

- Graphic Design

- Art Direction

- Branding

- Motion graphics

- Illustration

- Digital

- Packaging

- Project management

- Developing and interpreting a client's brief and seeing it through to completion and delivery.

- Client presentation / liaising / negotiating

- Print buying

- Partnering with/hiring/briefing third parties; Photographers, Web Developers and Copywriters.
