I have been working as a Graphic Designer for almost 20 years and I have gained experience in a wide range of disciplines from logos and branding to business and celebration stationery, newsletters and brochures to photo manipulation and retouching.
Tools of the trade
I am proficient in the use of the main industry leading software programs
SIS LIVE was the result of a merger of SISLink and BBC Outside Broadcasts, two very different but symbiotic businesses. The new branding came with the challenge of applying this bold new look over everything from office stationery to websites, newsletters to articulated vehicles. The creation and application of a set of brand guidelines aided the company throughout this transition and gave them clear direction on how to project their identity to the business world.
A logo is a visual representation of your company that appears on a whole range of media from print to online to identify you to your customers. However, a good logo offers more than just simple identification, it also give customers a sense of your company or club’s character and values. The personality of your business can be crafted with a careful choice of typeface and/or an accompanying graphic.
An invitation is often the first thing that your friends and family will see and can set the tone for what is to come. An image, a colour, a font can all set the tone for a wedding or celebration.
As well as creating my own style of celebration cards using handmade paper and an picture close to the client heart, I have also created themes around Horse Racing, Las Vegas and Lord Of The Rings.
Photograph manipulation and retouching
There is something very satisfying about restoring an historic or precious photograph back to its former greatness. A damaged, stained and in some cases, incomplete picture can be rescued using modern photographic software.
There could be any number of unsightly distractions on your other wise perfect image that can be removed to give you the picture you envisaged.
Merging images can also be crafted for an interesting or surprising effect.
