Upon completing my Graphic Arts Degree from Liverpool John Moores University in 2002, I worked for 2 years as a full time web designer for a small but ambitious web design and development company, whilst also doing some freelance work on the side.
I went full-time freelance early 2004, specialising in web standards based creative web design, graphic design, illustration and animation.
I work with clients across the UK and abroad: including London, Manchester, Liverpool and North Wales, and also in Denmark, Canada, USA, Hong Kong and Brazil. Basically: If you live on Earth, I can provide you with a service :)
My clients include the likes of Sony, Harper Collins, Warner Music, Swisscom, AT&T, Bet Fair, Missoni, Radisson, Hilton, IcelandAir, University of Westminster, De Montfort University and Defra. I have also produced work for many respected and leading agencies, groups and collectives, both in the UK and internationally.
For 4 years I also worked in-house and as part of a team at the View Creative Agency, fulfilling a senior web design and development role – planning, designing, building and maintaining websites and applications for high profile brands, and businesses and start-ups of various shapes and sizes. Clients I have dealt with include the likes of IMG International, TPNW, The Royal Parks Foundation and The Nelsons Group.
I am a proud member of The Guild of Accessible Web Designers – promoting the use and preservation of accessible design standards.
I was also a member of the Lemonade Illustration Agency and have been an author for Bite Size Standards and Everyday Designer.

Having trained to both Diploma and Degree standard in the Graphic Arts, and with over 20 years experience in the industry, I am passionate about what I do.
There are many design outfits out there that operate having had no, or very little, design training at all – and it often shows in the work they produce.
Alongside pixel-perfection in my designs, I also apply hand-coded fluency in my HTML and CSS code, utilising industry leading methods, tools and technology to ensure the highest quality output.
I work tirelessly to ensure all areas of my work are resolved and considered in every way, as I believe in high standards. This way of applying myself not only satisfies my own creative needs but, more importantly ensures that you, the client, receive quality and a service that will aid long term success and prosperity.
