PORTFOLIO

Web design

I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in web design from Pitman Training in July 2018. In my current role as the lead web design consultant for my current company, I have designed various websites using HTML5 and CSS3, incorporating JavaScript and utilising a good understanding of UX/UI, Wordpress and Dreamweaver. I am currently studying a further course in PHP. I like to balance good page flow with simple colour palettes, intelligent typography and striking visuals that make for a highly user-friendly experience. I also use Google Analytics to monitor traffic flow to websites.

Magazine design

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.

Photography & photo retouching

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.

Illustration

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.
