From the first day I picked up a pencil I've always been into art and design. Overall I've been a full time graphic & web designer for over 8 years now with a total of 5 companies. I've been lucky to have my work printed and have a global audience at times.
The industry has changed a lot with electronic devices and HTML standards that seem to change daily. With this designers including myself have to adapt and keep learning. So I also have experience in creating mobile safe responsive sites/emails as well as iOS & Android Apps and publications.
When it comes to design and perception I have very strong views on what works and what doesn't. In my opinion pretty much everything should have a purpose; your work has to be remembered for all the right reasons. In my opinion, there always has to be structure. As well as design I have many passions and influences. My biggest influence being all things Japan. I have visited three times now and am currently learning Japanese...kon'nichiwa mina!
I always make a point of visiting blogs and keeping my magazine subscriptions up to date as I am a keen learner and always looking to better myself.

This site was my portfolio. The reason I changed was because I thought the black may be a little too heavy and the slideshow didn't portray everything I wanted pull off but I also didn't want a huge legnthy sliideshow.
The whole site from top to bottom has been created and crafted by myself. I tried to create a site that was simple and easy to understand. Also branding that would be instantly recognisable and distinct. Responsive & Retina version as well as style update in progress.
My attempt at catching the essence of a girl in the middle of a good night dancing. How the music makes her feel, almost as if she’s floating and carefree. Was part of my submittion to a local club competition that invited designers to take part as much as it wasn’t used I am still proud of the results.
These are branding and website mock ups for a project that didn't get the green light but again was still happy with the final result.
