PORTFOLIO

Magazine design

I have over 16 years' experience in a design studio environment as a graphic designer for print, web and social media platforms. I have extensive experience of work within magazine publishing, with over 10 years in a senior position. My work has involved creating templates, re-designs and freestyle creations based on briefs from an editorial team.

I currently work as a member of a flexible design studio team for a publishing company, working across a number of B2C and B2B titles, which include Health & Wellbeing, Teach Primary, Teach Early Years, Healthy Diet, Natural Health, Let's Knit, Soul & Spirit and Grow Your Own magazines.

I've previously worked for another publishing company and been responsible for women's hair titles Blackhair, Hair, Hairstyles Only and Perfect Hair & Nails. In 2012, I was solely responsible for a complete re-design and launch of Hair Now magazine, sold internationally.

Web design

I have created a range of websites for clients such as Bulgarian Village Homes, Freebournes Studio, Stag Studios and various band websites, too. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in web design from Pitman Training, which has given me a good understanding of JavaScript, Wordpress and Dreamweaver, and an excellent knowledge of HTML and CSS. Previously, I have worked with a dedicated programmer to produce various websites, which are detailed below. I have also included a more recent example of my website work below:

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.
