I spend any and all spare time either working on Illustrations, Merchandise for self promotion (which never seems to pay off), or catching up on my sleep.
As a Designer my aim is to inject a good dose of humor, wether it be light or dark into
everything I do. This is often more subtle tongue in cheek humor rather than something
a little too extreme. "If you get them laughing, then half the battles won."
Art education background with Illustration.
Several Years experience of Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver and minimal
education in Flash and Acrobat Professional. Currently training in Indesign.
I was awarded most Improved Student of the year at my final Exhibition
on the H.N.D. as well as having the opportunity to create one of the Quee
Figures used to promote the event. My work was featured in the Urbis as
part of the Noise Festival in Manchester (2006), and I was part of the SAMPLE
exhibition in mid 2007.

Work Experience Summary: I have spent the last few years since Graduating University working for a few local community based projects and businesses. For example, my work for 'Make or Brake' Spare parts, St Johns Church Failsworth, and the 7th Manchester Scouts. I helped set up websites, created layouts and in some cases a full brand for them.
