I am a very skilled in typography, page layout, digital and traditional illustration, logo/identity creation, as well as modern printing requirements.
I have also completed a large interior design project in Glasgow converting a disused sewing machine factory in to a large, successful night-club. I sourced original Moroccan artifacts form Perpignon in France, and assisted with the sound system design.
I have also completed may residential interior design projects from minimalist design to luxury rural antique chic styles.
\"Simon demonstrates the rare ability to translate a client\'s requests into a cohesive design brief, and manages to combine their requests with the practicalities of presentation using digital media. His strong background in typography and layout make it easy to work with his designs within the confines of a technically sophisticated, template- and css-driven content management system. He is imaginative and creative, yet precise and organised, and I would not hesitate to recommend him as a graphic designer for electronic media. We would be very happy to work with him again if and when the opportunity arises.\" July 5, 2010

Kim Forsyth (Owner, Calligrafix, Lempitlaw, Kelso, Scottish Borders)
Hired Simon as a Graphic/Web Designer in 2009
Incredibly imaginative, I have been called upon to overcome a huge variety of design briefs and challenges, including the original Edinburgh Festival Hogmanay literature, an exhibition stand for the British Gas Powersavers competition, the design the complete range of medical packaging and product catalogue for Ethicon (Johnson and Johnson) and a large catalogue for Curtis Fine Papers.
Having worked regularly with Diageo and United Distillers, I was responsible for designing a whisky label for a special bottle, which was presented to HRH Prince Charles, as well as their monthly business presentation packages. One particular 1924 rare brand that I created the identity & labeling for was sold at Christie\'s Auction House.
I have successfully and creatively implemented corporate identities for different functions, while understanding the core branding principles. Often working within tight time constraints.
