creative design & branding
Branding is perhaps the most important factor when presenting your company or project to the world. It says a lot about the company or product being touted and only the foolhardy give it little thought. Potential customers subconsciously make an assumption about your company based on your branding in around 3 seconds so it is vitally important that they get a positive one.
I have many years experience producing eye catching designs for print and web as well as helping companies and individuals brand themselves in a positive and memorable way.
From brochures to posters, business stationary to international advertising campaigns, I can help you with them all.

Illustration takes many forms and can be used for a multitude of purposes from business graphics to storybook illustration. I extensively use all of the major software packages such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro, Cinema 4D and Corel Painter to produce artwork for your projects.
If you play games on your Playstation or Xbox you probably already have a good grasp on what 3D visualisation is. However, in the graphics industry it is used mainly to illustrate products or concepts that do not actually exist yet.
From the very early days of 3D modeling I was engaged in illustrating microchips and other electronic components for Texas Instruments to show off concept products or microchips that were being designed. Times have moved on and we can produce photorealistic scenes for almost anything!
Almost every photograph that has made it in to print has been manipulated in some way. It may be simple colour correction or removal of distracting objects or something on a grander scale such as moving the Eiffel Tower to Blackpool.
Much of my working day is spend using photoshop for a wide variety of tasks and I have a huge passion for it. I am confident that I can take almost any image and make it look a lot better, which in turn engages your potential viewers.
special effects & animation
Producing off-the-wall graphics in only limited by the imagination! I often use a wide range of techniques to create turbo-charged imagery.
tuition & consultancy
Although I have no formal certification for training I do have a wealth of experience that I can share. I have given tuition to many individuals and companies in the following areas: graphic design, setting up design/print businesses, photography, music production and more.
Consultancy and training is usually given on a one-to-one basis either at your location or via video conference.
Having been a Apple operative for many years I am also very handy when it comes to trouble shooting Mac computers, iPads, iPhones, network issues and more.
