I turn out a bi-monthly 100 page full colour magazine from scratch, create numerous flyers and promotional material for local businesses, and have plenty of experience of designing for those in the music business, doing concert posters, flyers, CD covers, DVD sleeves, digi-packs and CD prints.
Area Covered: Based in Hull, but I can (and I do) supply artwork to anyone with an internet connection
Work Experience Summary: I'm new to this site, hence no feedback yet, but here's a bit about me:
I started out learning in a basic studio, becoming proficient in pasting up artwork, shooting negatives, platemaking, and Mac Operating. I worked in the trade for eight years, spanning three different companies, and learning about setting up artwork, from business cards to 100 pages magazines, for a variety of print processes. The third company I worked for made me studio manager after two years, which I did for a full year before deciding to set up on my own. I look after a variety of clients, including two magazines, and supply artwork on disk or via the web, dealing with almost all of my clients via email proofs - but you're welcome to use the phone as well!
Education Summary: I have 8 GCSE's, 2 A Levels, and a GNVQ Level 2 and 3 in Graphics and Printing. I have been on several courses during my years in employment, and was proficient enough in Adobe Illustrator that I was sent to tutor the tutors on it's use at the art college, where my then employers had a scholarship system in place.
I always did well in English language, and was able to pair this skill up with my design skills when one of the magazines I work for, a music publication called Fireworks, took me on as a designer and a journalist. I have conducted 24 interviews with various famous names and written articles about them for the magazine, as well as contributing reviews. So if your project needs to look good, but you'd like help on flowering up the text, I can help with that too!
