What I do


  • Design

    From a simple logo to a complete product or company branding, I can provide a wide range of graphic design services. With experience in areas ranging from editorial design; to motion graphics; to branding for screen and print, offering a broad knowledge of design conventions and processes. I can give your business the edge when it comes to professional presentation.

  • Video

    In the age of broadband and fibre optic internet connections, HD video is an increasingly important way to reach your audience. You need a video to differentiate you from the masses; a professionally produced and highly polished piece of marketing that will target your desired audience effectively and efficiently. I’ll help you really stand out from the competition.

  • Animation

    Already have a video and just want to liven it up a bit? Want to give your website a more dynamic look? Or perhaps you need to find an eye catching, entertaining, and informative way to present complex processes or ideas. I can provide motion graphics that will make those presentations pop. I’ll help you to show your customers exactly why you’re the best choice for them.

Process

How I do it


Consultation

By working closely with you, the client, I’ll determine exactly what you want and need; as well as consulting on what would be the best course of action to achieve the results you want.

Conception

Once I have the brief outlining your requirements, I’ll develop concepts for potential development into a finished product.

Development

With your feedback, I’ll develop early concepts into a single cohesive idea that will achieve the goals laid out in the consultation stage.

Delivery

Drawing on a wide range of media production and project management skills, I’ll make these ideas a reality and deliver a high quality finished product that you can present to your customers with pride.

About me

Facts About Me


With 6 years of experience producing media for clients ranging from local businesses to multinational corporations, I have the skills and know-how to help you reach your customers. I offer a friendly and personal service where you can have as much or as little input into the design process as you want. I’ll be able to guide you through the process and advise on the best methods to achieve the results you desire.

I LOVE TO LEARN NEW THINGS

I'm always looking to expand my knowledge and skills in any way I can. I regularly read books and take courses on marketing and design, social psychology, and business development. A few favourite books are 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg, 'Drive' by Daniel H. Pink, and 'Universal Principles of Design' by Jill Butler, Kritina Holden, and Will Lidwell.

I LOVE TO MEET NEW PEOPLE

I regularly host events for the website citysocializer.com on a voluntary basis. Not only has this been a great way to meet new people from all walks of life, but it's given me the opportunity to fully explore everything Liverpool has to offer. My work regularly benefits from the contacts I make through CS.

I LIKE TO STAY ACTIVE

I like to offset the often desk-bound nature of my work by staying as active as possible in my spare time. I've been going to weekly swing dancing lessons and socials for over a year and a half now. I've gotten so involved in the swing dancing community, I now teach some of the classes and even perform at the odd event. I also like to occasionally go bouldering and running.
