Experience

Web Designer & Developer
Jan 2005 - (at present)

Front and back-end web design and development, with over ten years experience in the creative industry. Have worked on multiple design projects for clients ranging from small high street retailers to medium sized enterprises.

My work spans several aspects of creative design including logos and company branding, business card design, bespoke web design and development and high-end retouching, with consultative and solutionising services. I offer bespoke, tailor made solutions to client specifications, building web sites from the ground up using modern, clean, sleek and minimal design concepts where possible. Look and feel, and user experience are important elements to me that flow through all of my design work, ensuring all completed projects stand out from the crowd and are a cut above the rest.

I've always been passionate about design, over time I've strived to stay ahead of changing technologies by constantly producing stunning pieces of work using various techniques and softwares that allow me to put thought and ideas into creative reality. I've come a long way since the classroom, achieving an A* at school in graphics fueled my ambition to delve into the world of digital creativity, and today I'm excelling to be the best at what I do in freelance web and graphic design.

Not only do I successfully manage key design projects alongside sharing my knowledge and expertise with clients, I also provide sound insight and consultancy to aid growth of businesses through various design concepts and marketing strategy. I have a keen eye for detail, thinking outside the box to be different when designing for businesses to stand out from the crowd.
