As a multi-skilled creative I have over fifteen years experience of professional work in the creative field, with expert knowledge of sufficient depth that I have been able to teach such skills in further education. As an illustrator I can produce striking and pertinent visualisations for a diverse range of applications including print, web and multimedia. I have fine art training and continue to produce both digital and traditional art works for personal and commissioned projects. With over eight years commercial experience in graphic design I have developed a solid practical knowledge and capability of this discipline. I have actively developed my design sense by utilising a wide range of creative media, producing both versatile and intelligent solutions. My expertise with design software includes Photoshop, Quark Xpress, Illustrator, InDesign. I am experienced in design for web and familiar with packages such as Dreamweaver. I also have some experience with implementing CMS such as Joomla and Drupal. I have also produced motion graphics and film using After Effects. I am familiar with the techniques used in 3d applications such as 3ds Max. As an illustrator I also use Corel Painter. I am equally at home on Mac OS or PC platforms.
