Graphic Designer / Animator / Marketer with a broad skill set and enthusiasm for brand development and visual communications…

I currently work within a team of three in-house graphic designers at ITW Construction Products. My key responsibilities are to improve the company's photography and the creation of Cullen (timber connectors) installation animations using Autodesk 3DS Max and Adobe Premiere.

My role extends to 'marketing support' for our Alpine and Gang-Nail customers to promote their business and drive sales. This includes graphic design (leaflets to full re-branding) and the writing of press releases and case studies.

Prior to the ITW merger campaign, I was responsible for brand design and all graphic design to include literature, displays, etc. at ITW Industry.

Enthusiasm for design continues into my free time - completing several small projects a year under the pseudonym of "Shockin' Goblin". This provides an ideal opportunity to stretch my creative skills outside the confinement of my employer’s corporate brand guidelines.

I'm now keen to progress my career in a creative position within a brand and communications focused business. I would welcome the opportunity to take on responsibility for a brand, offering skills accumulated over 10+ years as a graphic designer and marketer.
