My Top skills

Creative, Collaborative, Calculated, CProblem Solver. I see two sides of every story all the time, which really helps the creative & design process.

Graphic Design

Creative solutions, branding, strategy and lots of digital & print. I mainly focus on brand identity & logo design, however packaging and general ads / newsletters are something I can also create for clients.

Photography

Direction, product photography & retouching. Lots of pack shots and a little e-commerce. I mainly focus on branding now, however I still offer this out as it’s a staple for me.

Product dev.

Creative concepts, planning, image manipulation, prototyping, 2D renders, digital & print outputs.

Web Design

You learn so much when you design and build your own site. I have developed an overwhelming understanding of business and processes in this area from doing it for myself. Just missing a pro devs touch. I do enjoy designing and building websites through WordPress & Elementor.

Software

Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, XD, Acrobat, Capture One. Procreate & After Effects (Newb), Slack & Spotify (Big fan). Always using Notes or pages. Don’t forget a handy file structure.
