After gaining a Video and Photography HND and following up with a BA Hons degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, I worked with companies like Rolls-Royce and Océ, as a graphic designer for over 10 years. I also went on to expand my knowledge of the complete print process by attending various printing courses as I wanted to be sure that my designs transferred well on to paper.
Now freelance, I am doing a wide range of design work for companies ranging from one-man businesses up to large well known companies, and helping out in design agencies as well as designing personalised bespoke pictures.
I can provide logo and corporate-image design, whether you need just personalised stationery and a basic logo creating within a tight budget, or need global branding for a company with many divisions where an overall corporate image is required with divisional logos etc. which are coordinated within the same style.
I can design a simple ad for a local magazine, online etc. or I can design whole page adverts for insertion into trade or national magazines and periodicals.
Having designed exhibition graphics for exhibitions in Birmingham, Milan, Dusseldorf, Las Vegas, New Orleans, I am experienced in the demands that these different cultures can place upon ‘style’ and can help you to get across your brand and product to your audience.
After being asked by a few friends to design their wedding invitations, I realised that it meant a lot to me to help create that important first glance of the special day their guests were being invited to, it also allowed me to play around with textures and different materials, which I loved.
