Work Experience Summary: I’ve been working in the advertising industry now for 10 years.
My ï¬rst job as a wide eyed junior was with an agency called Splash of Paint in Reading, were I cut my teeth on brands such as Honda UK, SGI, Chrysler Motorsport and 3M. I stayed there for a year, got some solid experience & headed back home to Devon. Here I worked in house for a company called Goodridge, were in a team of two we worked on day to day brand management and graphic design for print & web, being in-house was not the ideal position, so on to a new challenge.
The Ad Works was a small agency with big aspirations. The original advert called for candidates to be team players and hit the ground running, I sent my CV in a relay baton - the interview went well and I got the job. At The Ad Works I worked on brands such as Mountï¬eld Unlimited, Stiga, Wilkinson Sword, Bombardier and ICI and covered many areas from new business presentations for creative work, branding for both on-line and print, graphic design, and minor day to day account holding. After 5 years here, it was time for a new challenge.
Between Febuary 2006 to March 2008 I worked as an Art Director at Bray Leino, a large Marketing & Communications Agency which is part of The Mission Group based in Filliegh, North Devon. Here I worked on a wide range of large brands including BP, Shloer, Covonia, Hedrin, BT Openzone and Intel.
Recently after increasing success in my freelance services I have made the big leap and set up graphic design company The Layer. Via a number of trusted freelance partnerships The Layer provides a single point of contact for design and technical services for small to medium business providing Graphic Design & Branding, Copywriting, Programming, Web Hosting, Search Engine Marketing, Artworking, Illustration, Photo-retouching.
