I have strong management and communication skills, gained from taking full responsibility for graphic projects from beginning to end; taking briefs from clients, working to budgets, obtaining quotes, designing and press passing the final job. I also keep aware of current print technologies and trends, whilst being a diligent internet researcher.
I am fluent in Quark XPress, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator with good knowledge of all supporting software, such as Acrobat Professional and Microsoft Office.
My portfolio covers every aspect of design from corporate identities through to packaging and direct marketing. I have produced several books and presently design and artwork a monthly trade magazine.
My present work is varied, current and very creative.
