Experience and Clients
Upon completing my degree in - errr crikey - 2002, I worked for 2 years as a full time web designer for a small but ambitious web design and development company, whilst also doing a bit of freelance stuff as well.
I went 'full-on' freelance early 2005, specialising in web standards based creative web design, graphic design, illustration and animation ...
My clients include the likes of Sony, Warner Music, Swisscom, AT&T, Bet Fair, Missoni, Radisson, Hilton, IcelandAir, University of Westminster and Defra. I have also produced work for many respected and leading agencies, groups and collectives, both in the UK and internationally.
I have also worked very closely alongside the View Creative Agency, in a sub-contract capacity fulfilling a web design and development role. Clients I have dealt with include the likes of IMG International, TPNW, The Royal Parks Foundation and the Nelsons Group.
I am a proud member of The Guild of Accessible Web Designers - promoting the use and preservation of accessible design standards.
I was also a member of the Lemonade Illustration Agency and have been an author for Bite Size Standards.

Having trained to both Diploma and Degree standard in the Graphic Arts, and with over 10 years experience in the industry, I am passionate about what I do.
There are many design outfits out there that operate having had no, or very little, design training at all - and it often shows in the work they produce.
I work tirelessly to ensure all my work is resolved and considered in every way, as I believe in high standards. This way of applying myself not only satisfies my own creative needs but, more importantly ensures that you, the client, receive quality and a service that will aid long term success and prosperity.
Right, now I've got that off my chest, I think I'll have a warm chocolate drink and a Hob-Nob or five ...
