About

I am a freelance graphic designer based in Cardiff UK, and have been creating in the field for nearly 10 years.

I graduated in 1999 with a BA in Industrial Design, and it from there I discovered the power and importance of print and web based graphic design.

I am a highly adaptable designer and recent work has sent me off creating for the music and entertainments industry, retail and catering and corporate branding. Work has included CD artwork & packaging, flyers, posters, web design, advertising and editorial design, promotional flyer designs, marketing collateral, promotional material, menus, stationary, amongst other things.

Visually, my main aim is to create a simplistic, yet communicative idea that attaches itself well to the product or project and when required, I work closely with the client in order to achieve this effectively.

I enjoy mixing photography, with strong typographic elements, using other methods such as negative lithographic printing and purely digital. Also I try to pay special attention to paper-stock type, as texture is an important aspect to my work.

I adore high quality, yet simple design, and never afraid to push the boundaries in order to create something eye-catching and innovative.
