Using Adobe’s CS suite, I translate features into visually successful layouts. I regularly work to tight deadlines on a vast range of products at short notice and can adapt to the house style and filing structure without previous knowledge of either. I’m perfectly suited to running a busy art room, commisioning artwork, directing photoshoots and designing covers. Passionate about design I self funded a course in multi-media obtaining new qualifications at Southbank College while working part-time.This encouraged me to start creating websites for private clients and small businesses. Url\'s of my work will be supplied on demand.
