After leaving university I played drums in an indie rock band for a year, before spending 6 months employed as a professional photo retoucher. In spring 2003 I set up my own company and started working for myself, and have never looked back.
I have many specialist skills: highest quality contemporary design and illustration for packaging (CD covers, product packaging, shop bags...), branding (company stationery, logo design...), marketing (ads, flyers, leaflets, brochures, web banners, etc). I am also a very experienced photo retoucher, and have extensive experience of creative retouching (effects and layering) and cosmetic retouching of products or people. I have also produced illustrations for a wide range of media, in an array of styles.
I have many contacts in the field of design, photography and film production and have worked in conjunction with other designers and creatives on various projects. If an aspect of a brief is outside my scope then I can bring in the talent to step in.
