A little bit about me

I am a Graphic Designer based in Derbyshire who has been working in the industry for the past 12 years and would predominantly describe myself as a print designer although as you will see from my portfolio I also design websites, email campaigns and brand identities.

After graduating from Staffordshire University in 1999 I worked for a small software company called Softease until the firm was taken over by Research Machines (now RM Education) in 2005. Here I was given the opportunity to work on my own initiative and alongside other like-minded designers on a variety of different projects for internal and external clients.

My career

Initially when I started out, my main focus was on print design as this was the dominant media at the time but as the years went on the need to develop websites became greater and I began to develop my web design skills too. Throughout out my career as a designer I have had the pleasure of working on numerous projects covering areas such as:

Since leaving University I have mainly worked for Softease/RM Lightbox but I have also had the opportunity to work with blue chip clients such as LEGO® DACTA, RM Education and Panasonic on joint venture projects.

My skills

I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Fireworks), QuarkXpress, MS Office and have an understanding of Adobe Flash. For website development I predominantly use Dreamweaver but I also exploit the many advantages of Wordpress if more functionality is required. During my time as a MARCOMS designer I have been asked to develop numerous email campaigns for which I have utilised a series of online and offline packages including Constant Contact, Mail Chimp and Aweber Content Management Systems (CMS).

I am proficient on both Mac and PC systems and can use all of the above listed software on both.
