It is my passion and as such I get so much enjoyment out of my work.
I have vast experience with graphical elements of design work concentrating my early computing career within the Adobe Creative Suite of applications thus have built up a great working knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects as well as basic knowledge of the quark and Corel packages available.
Most recently I have become the sole design source for a local company who predominantly deal with the MOD and a large number of charity organisations. Part of this deal is that I pass on details of anybody looking for media related work, i.e. PR, Documentaries, DVD's etc. So if you are needing any of these services I can forward details to my partner.
Area Covered: North Devon, South West of England
Work Experience Summary: Over the past decade I have produced work for a wide variety of companies and individuals with work as diverse as full websites to simple logos.
I have always used Mac computers and Adobe software as I believe these two offer the best partnership for any design based work.
In the last few years I have started to write and design iPhone Apps and have so far written 3 Apps under a white label scheme which are all available in the UK App store, two other Apps I have written for myself are currently being rewritten for the upcoming launch of the iPad in the UK. These will be submitted to Apple for approval within the coming few weeks.
Education Summary: Having left school at the age of 16 with 9 GCSE grades at a level of 'C' or above I immediately knew that my future involved computers in some form or other.
I started working for PC World, which gave me an excellent grounding in customer services which still sticks with me to this day.
From here I moved into a marketing position for Applegate Directories which is based near my home town. This again provided another business insight in the computing field, this time in marketing and promotions.
It was then I started to design logos and other images for, at first, friends and family but then from other contacts for use in their businesses.
I am currently waiting to Start a degree in Computing with Psychological Studies as soon as I have the time available, i.e. 2011.
