I offer web design consultancy services, and have worked with various clients in the financial, consumer and .NET software development industries. My design advice usually covers web visuals and page design, UX/UI, SEO improvement and boosting conversion rates.
I have designed promotional and point of sale work for a range of clients in my career, including big brands and names such as Roald Dahl/Teachwire, Harper Collins, Skyr, The Royal Horticultural Society, Deichmann, Creative Nature Superfoods, Odylique, Sleek Hair, and Dr Organic. My marketing work includes promotional banners, posters, flyers, advertorials, magazine covers, packaging artwork, adverts, subs pages and roller stand artwork.
With a strong agency and design studio background spanning over 18 years, I have created hundreds if not thousands of print projects including magazines, brochures, logos, flyers, books and also a range of secure, confidential publications. I have a very detailed and thorough understanding of pre-press production, production schedule management, barcode production, page layout and typography.
I have extensive experience of retouching and editing images in Photoshop for print work and promotional purposes. I am also skilled in product and studio photography. Much of my styling and photo work has been featured in women's lifestyle magazines Hair and Blackhair. I am proficient in using Broncolor lighting systems, Colorama backdrops and other studio equipment.
Some of my illustration work comes from projects I worked on during my time at Hair and Blackhair magazines, but I also create my own artwork too – from paintings on canvas, to digital sketching and painting using Adobe Photoshop and Paint Tool SAI. My style is influenced by Hayao Miyazaki's art and film work, Shirow Masamune's and Tite Kubo's art – but I like to think I can turn my hand to any kind of illustrative design.
