Digital designer and fine artist with approximately twenty years of experience in the creative industries with a professional knowledge of online marketing, print-ready design and multimedia asset production.
I consider myself to be a dual practitioner with a fine art practice that compliments my professional digital design. I am interested in where these two identities overlap.
I have experience of working alone and as part of a larger design team, developing branding solutions and guiding projects for inception to completion.
I achieved a First Class BA(Hons) in Fine Art and Professional Practice at the University Campus in Blackpool through Lancaster University. During the final year I received an A+ grade for all modules and completed the course with an aggregate score of 23.1/24. This was the highest aggregate grade ever achieved in Fine Art and Professional Practice at the Lancaster University or Blackpool campuses. The full transcript of grades is available here.
I have a working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite creating print ready graphics and catalogue layout designs. I also have professional experience producing video content with After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Although the majority of my creative output is developed in the Adobe Creative Suite I have experience of numerous other packages including Blender, ToonBoom and a several product specific software solutions.
