I will get to know everything I can about your business, product or service and will ask you lots of questions.
I see the job through from conception to post delivery dealing with ideas, design, proofing, print management, delivery and distribution. I have been in the business one way or another for over thirty years and maintain a high standard of work coupled with up to date ideas.
Area Covered: Scotland, North of England
Work Experience Summary: I worked as an in house graphic designer and print manager in a major blue chip company for 15 years fulfilling all below the line needs - posters, leaflets, brochures, magazines, flyers and direct mail - from brief to distribution.
As well as design for print and exhibition design I did copy writing and editing, worked successfully with internal clients and external partners, printers and other service providers. Experience in design in pre Mac days means that for me design comes first and software, wonderful though it is, is a creative tool. Since 2006 I have freelanced in similar areas and added interior and garden design as recent interests.
