  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available Soon

I am a freelance graphic designer currently working on projects for my own clients as well as working in-house with various marketing and design agencies. I’m trying to grow my client base and build up longer term relationship with both clients and agencies and I’m always looking for new work. I like a company that has sound ideals and is trying to develop in a conscientious way, to work on projects that I respect and with people who appreciate that design is a highly skilled craft, where care and attention are as important as great ideas.

I have many years experience covering most fields of graphic design including DM, corporate, branding, POS, packaging, retail, signage, magazine, literature, advertising and web design. I like to work with art directors on the design and implementation of a project through from initial concept to final production. I enjoy solving a design problems as well as crafting good quality artwork and I am up to speed on all the relative software packages.

Designing and creating a large selection of print and web projects for such clients as, Association of Illustrators (images 2005-2010 annuals & various publications).
Gourmet Cat Food (Mailing packs).
Medical Resaerch Centre (Brochure design).
RNIB (various brochure and signage designs).
WDMP (TalkTalk literature, Thomson holidays DM).
WWAV RAPP Collins (Sony POS, NSPCC publications and various Direct Marketing).
Also short spells at BMT, BDG McColl, John Brown Citrus, Ogilvy, Reef.
