I'm an award winning designer
and photographer...from Stoke!!
Originally born in Stoke-on-Trent, I'm a full-time designer and part-time photographer based in Leek, Staffordshire. I can often be found wandering the Peak District with my Canon 600D searching for great shots.
Being a photographer goes with the territory of being a designer - whether it's studio portraits, business photography, family shoots, weddings, personal design work, or just landscapes on a sunny day, I'm rarely without my camera.
I was a Senior Designer for RAR Top 100 Ad Agency, Lesniak Swann, for 7 years. I've since landed a great job as Studio Manager at Fluid.
A year or two ago, I designed this campaign for the NHS, which won a Cream Award and an
IPA Best of Health Award.
Three prospectuses I designed and produced, won consecutive Heist Awards for South Cheshire College, a college I completely rebranded too. I've also designed all kinds of print work for Michelin, UCLan, Honda, Volvo, Portmeirion and Stoke-on-Trent Tourist Board.
I also wrote this campaign for Soreen.
But no designer is complete without some web design - although I'm primarily front-end, I've built sites using Wordpress and CS-Cart. Here's an example of a front end I designed for Lancashire Science Festival.
You've probably noticed that the links for the above all go off-site.
Well, I don't own the copyright for 'em, so there ya go ;)
What I can do...
With over 10 years' experience as primarily a print designer, I've been heavily involved in award winning projects with ex-Saatchi and Saatchi Creative Directors. I've kept up to speed on web and UI design and have designed the front-end for clients such as UCLan, Michelin and even one in conjunction with NASA.
I've written creative copy for many clients, and art directed campaigns and production of anything from entire prospectuses to full ad campaigns.
I'm also a keen photographer - be it landscapes, people, travel, gigs or weddings.
