I have worked with many of the UK's leading companies and also in senior marketing roles for two blue chip advertisers.
I am familiar with all aspects of Design and Advertising projects and my specialist areas of experience are Brand and Corporate Identity, Direct Marketing campaigns, B2B and B2C Strategy, and New Product Launches.
Area Covered: UK and International
Company Name: RED Graphics
Industry: Marketing and Advertising
Work Experience Summary: My experience has covered first hand involvement in every aspect of the above and below-the-line marketing programme. I am a fully trained designer and also an experienced copywriter.
I spent 15 years in London Advertising Agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and Grey Advertising as an Account Director, and also later as a Copywriter, working on a wide variety of businesses including Nestle, B&Q, Daily Mail, London Evening News, Unipart, Bacardi, Tia Maria, Brooke Bond Oxo and Alfa Romeo. In the middle of this I spent 3 years at British Gas - in its heyday when it had over 1,000 showrooms - where I was 'Senior Advertising Manager' reporting to the Board and presenting to Government Ministries.
After this I returned north and spent 5 years as MD of a Communications Group offering Design, PR, Advertising and Print from which basis I then opened my own business working with companies such as DuPont, Crayola, Sodastream, Rank (Grosvenor Casinos & Mecca) and Wallace Arnold (now part of Shearings) plus numerous other leisure companies.
Across that time I have personally developed most areas of advertising and graphics from TV and cinema commercials to the humble (but very important) sticker or balloon.
Since selling the business and working freelance my clients have included Siemens (Osram & Radium), HRE, Oasis, Horse Deals Magazine on a regular basis and numerous others with less frequent tasks.
I have now sold the business and work from home supplying PPH Clients in the UK and around the world. (2013)
Update… I have also worked for the past three years (2014-2017) preparing the whole range of marketing services for a British company distributing and promoting specialist health products worldwide. This role embraced all aspects of work including packaging, copy writing, articles and blogs, exhibitions, sales promotion, website design and text, and new product development.

Absolutely brilliant, great work, excellent design and great communication, I am so pleased with his work.
John produced a mock up draft within a few hours and made all ammendments as necesaary until final proof sign off with the printers. Very pleased with the end result.
John did an excellent job from copywriting to final design. It was a breath of fresh air to work with someone who fully understands about graphic design and is able to apply it with patience and humour.
I engaged John to design a print ready double sided A5 flyer. He exceeded my expectations. He did several changes and was patient when he had to wait for us to respond. John's work was excellent and he certainly overdelivered on this job. I will certainly use his services for future projects.
John R has been a pleasure to work with. He is very prompt and the articles written were well researched and to a standard. He made sure he fully understood the brief and was in regular contact to check I was happy with the work provided. I would certainly recommend him to anyone else.
Excellent job so far, many thanks John.
Supportive, professional and very patient!
Here you go John. Will transfer so more in later today, tomorrow. I'm off to Harvard for a couple of weeks so racing to get as much sorted as possible..Your work looks fantastic
John produced a well structured well researched piece in the time frame we specified.
Would recommend John to anyone requiring solid well researched pieces.
John took on the brief for a service new to the market. After a thorough consultation he took on the challenge and working to a very tight deadline produced an excellent solution to our requirements. No hesitation in recommending his work.
John is a pleasure to work with and he created something which was beyond my expectations. John was prepared to listen to my requests and then developed a brochure perfectly suited to my target audience. Will continue to use.
John has done brilliant work, he understood exactly what I needed and has produced brilliant work.
Will definately be working together again. Thank you.
