I am responsible for original creation and brand development, across a broad range of applications from vehicle livery and exhibitions to advertising and printed marketing material. Deadlines are crucial and in this pressured environment I am happy to do whatever it takes to get the job done to the highest standard and on time. In addition to our in house creation we also offer our small but highly skilled team's services as a marketing department to third party clients. As part of this service I am required to work closely with our Account Manager to confidently deliver fresh, clear and effective solutions, possess strong customer facing skills, time management and be able to effectively prioritise workflow.
I have approaching 8 years of commercial design experience and have been lucky enough to have worked for some of the Southwest's finest advertising agenceys. I studied Website Technologies at a London college and shortly after became employed by a large franchise print & design company as a artworker, they sent me on various courses and taught me design for print from the ground up, this was an excellent grounding, starting as mainly spot colour Litho work after which I was given more artistic license, from there excelled in print design and have completed many different complex projects.
Branding, logo design and seeing the concept neatly repeated through lots of different media is something which I very much enjoy doing. I am very experienced in working closely with clients and seem to build a trust worthy rapour with all customers I work for. I am happy to get involved in preparing proposals and in turn pitching them to clients, formally or informally.
I am fully conversant with Adobe CS3, and am also very proficient with the new CS4 application suite. I am constantly updating my skills and knowledge with design software as this is such a fast moving industry. i am also currently learning alot about 3D modeling and specifically using ArciCAD and Vue Extreme to help create and render internal and external CGI's for use in promoting off-plan property.
