I am a Digital Media Designer in the South of the UK. My job encompasses a variety of design skills from image manipulation & layout, print design, web design, brand design, occasional animation and 3d modelling.

In a nutshell…

  • am a graphic designer, digital designer, print designer, jack of all trades mostly… but I think the technical term is ‘multi-skilled’
  • Have probably used most of the Adobe Suite in my career at one point or another (even when some of them were Macromedia – remember the old days when software wasn’t updated every weekend to another version!). These days am mainly using Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, with a smattering of Dreamweaver and Flash.
  • am currently trying to get my head around web code, its gradually seeping in, though I draw the line at actually writing code, but I would like to understand it a little bit at least!
  •  I am bit of a geek (not a nerd – that’s a whole different category so I’m told). Quite enjoy tinkering with technology
  • enjoy photography (see my Flickr page). Have recently discovered Instagram, love it!
  • am of Irish/Scottish origin and I don’t tan
  • would love to live and work abroad for at least a year, particularly NYC. Only been once but fell in love with the place.
  • wish I’d learnt a musical instrument, piano I think
  • I am not very good at ‘twitter’… There just aren’t enough hours in the day.
  • that said I think Facebook is a fantastic networking tool (mind you Facebook, STOP changing your settings!)
  • I live with the most laid back cat in the world
  • I am good at DIY
  • have an excellent long term memory for useless trivia
  • crap short term memory and cannot remember most things unless I write it down…
