First and foremost, I’m a thinker. I think outside the box, inside the box, inspect the material, analyse the creases – all that jazz. Secondly, creativity runs directly through my bones. Good design gives me goosebumps. Colours, patterns, grids, fonts. They’re all magnificent little puzzle pieces just waiting to create absolutely anything you wish! It’s just fascinating.
I am not just an artist. I am not just a graphic designer. I am a visual communicator. I speak the language of colour schemes, call-to-actions, and user experience. One of the things I love about my job is the great tools I get to work with. Here are some of the tools I use in my work. I use Photoshop, Illustrator and In design for my layout and design. Able to handle any given task, multimedia, motion, branding or print, which is demonstrable through an extensive portfolio of projects.
I’m an experienced designer providing a friendly, flexible and professional service to ensure my clients appeal to their target market and communicate their product or service effectively and creatively. I feel very lucky to say that I absolutely love my job and being able to make other people’s dreams come to life through creativity and collaboration. I love to create bold and beautiful designs that balance business strategy, user experience, colour psychology and brand design, telling the story of what you do with personality and authenticity. I think it’s important to align your brand or web design to your values, vision and ethos, understanding the intricacies of what you do and capturing that through a visual identity that enables you to sell with ease and integrity. I’m known as (as per passport to family & friends), Jim-Bob or Huxly (amongst many others that couldn’t possibly be published here). Dark Eyes, Brown Hair, 5ft 9ish (under 14 stone and trying to keep it there). I am a tireless seeker of knowledge, an occasional purveyor of wisdom and also, coincidentally, a graphic designer. My school of thought is reliant on schooling my thought – thoroughly, and regularly; keeping abreast of design, branding, advertising trends and solutions. My Design process always starts with a pencil and paper, scribbling ideas and concepts, thinking about the problem and the solution. What sets me apart from the crowd is an idea that I carry to and from each and every project I work on. Graphic Design isn’t just art. It’s more than aesthetics. It’s communication. It’s artistically, aesthetically and visually communicating an idea. One of the things I love about my job is the great tools I get to work with every day, here are some of the tools I use in my work. I use Photoshop, Illustrator and In design for my layout and design. I try to brand myself and make myself memorable. The CV is seen to be seen by a creative, not an accountant. I try to ‘Wow’ you. I try to be more than a sheet of paper. I want a project and I’m so eager to get started.
