Profile I am currently working as a freelance designer specialising in video, web-based, print and logo production. I am highly experienced in producing content for local bands, music venues and independent businesses. This experience has furthered my ability to work well with clients, and to meet their deadlines and expectations. I am a free thinker who is up to date and knowledgeable about new media and graphic design trends and news. I believe concepts must always start with the idea and then what technology and design disciplines to use will naturally follow suit. I relish working in a creative environment and expressing ideas. Once a plan is in place I can go away and work independently, while always keeping in conversation with my colleagues about new ideas and changes. I use graphic design, HTML and Flash web design, video capture & editing, motion graphic design, and interactive design disciplines to envision ideas. I have a personal blog to chart my thoughts and ideas as well as my own work and inspirational pieces. I completed an Interactive Design (iMedia) degree at John Moores University My Final Degree Project was installed at the BBC Radio Merseyside Studios in Liverpool as part of an exhibit during June 08.
Since finishing University I have worked on many freelance projects : Act Of Grace – Flyer/Poster/Dvd Designed the promotional items for independent film, Act of Grace.

NHS – Print Design Poster design for the rear section of single decker busses. The design brief was to promote the dangers of passive smoking. The project was funded by NHS and St. Helens Council. During this project I had to produce high resolution photos and direct a photoshoot. I worked on the research and planning stages to the construction. It was then passed on to a sign making company who applied the design to the bus. Other Recently completed the design of a logotype for an Independent Music label. The logo was to be used on the labels main website as well as appearing on all EP & LP vinyl releases. I have built up a number of working relationships with musicians both over the internet and around Liverpool. These relationships have lead to Work including music videos and EP covers to go to print. I have also worked with venues in Liverpool creating posters, flyers and general artwork promoting events.
