What I Do
When I'm not diving, painting or riding the woodland trails, walking the dog,cooking a real curry or running a taxi service for my girls!
Illustrations allow ideas to be communicated quickly, to enforce words, help with site navigation and reflect your brand. My drawn images can be technical, abstract, inspired and great fun! I love drawing – using traditional skills as well as digital tools and am not fixed to one style.
How your website is found and then used, viewed and interacted with is no black art but achieved with simple strategies and common sense. It must have strong visual impact that upholds your brand, communicate clearly what you are trying to say and allow the user to navigate easily
A product requires packaging that will not only protect it physically but will also sell itself. It must reflect your brand and communicate effectively what your product is, why it is unique and how it works, what it tastes like, it’s place in a range and stand out on the shelf.
Has anyone seen my bloody glasses?
I am available for freelance design, artwork or illustration work for a daily rate, at your place of work or from my own studio. I am conversant with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and In-Design as well as having a good understanding of HTML and CSS. Please get in touch for current availability and day rate.
When working on-site, please don’t sit me in front of your oldest, slowest Mac and please have decent, real coffee available, otherwise you won’t get the best from me. Donuts are also good.
