My passion for digital design started in my school days where I was fortunate enough to be in a classroom with a dusty Macintosh Classic. I drew my first pixel using Mac Paint in 1995, designed my first website in 1997 and made my first video with iMovie in 1999. Nearly ten years and billions of pixels later, I have naturally orientated my university choices toward digital design obtaining a Masters in Digital Media Production in Oxford. I have since then been a full time graphic, motion and web designer.
My education and experience has led me to be a versatile designer with a flair for elegant and simple design across multiple media. My current set of skills is the achievement of years of experience driven by a personal passion for creativity and communication, I call myself an all round designer and essentially work across four main categories: Print Design, Motion Design, Web Design and Photography.
There would be no great design without the help from great tools. I use an extensive range of programs to assist me with my creations. Most programs I use lend themselves to be Mac orientated, however I am comfortable to work with both Mac and PC. This is the basic tool kit which I use on a daily basis, it's fair to say that I know them like the back of my hand!
I have the technical ability necessary and more importantly, the flair and ambition required to make each project successful. But enough with the buzzwords, here is a selection of client and personal work that I've recently been working on...
