I currently do a lot of work in the Reprographics side of high-end packaging manufacture & using this knowledge, my finished artwork files will always be finalised to Printer specifications, saving you money when you deliver files to your Print-house, as they will not need to re-construct the files for print.
I am a passionate, quick working designer, with a wealth of experience, who can, not only furnish you with top-class designs but can also provide you with finished printed materials from business cards through to giant scaffolding banners. No job too big or too small, my only care is that you get the designs you were looking for.
Please consider me for your future project.
