Me, Myself, I

I’m a graphic designer, rookie web designer and map illustrator, living near Sevenoaks, high on the beautiful North Downs of Kent.

After spending the customary four years at Art College, the bulk of my working life (13 years) was at Country Living Magazine, published by Hearst, in London. There, I did every job in the art department – from Picture Researcher all the way up to Acting Art Director – and I learnt many key design skills: how to transform words and pictures into something clear and informative for the consumer to understand, how to select good pictures, and how to work quickly. I also styled for many magazine photo-shoots and did a bit of feature writing – something I enjoyed very much – and I like to think that being around good sub-editors for so long honed my editing skills.

Since moving to Kent I’ve kept busy with freelance graphic design, map illustration and increasingly design for the web.

My design philosophy is good design at a fair price. Take a look at the examples on the site and if you are looking for something similar I can give you an idea of cost. So don’t be shy, send me an email and I will see if I can help you.
