Who am I?
Well first and foremost I am a Newcastle United fan which I guess would make me….a glutton for punishment! The above image of Alan Shearer at least reminds me of slightly better times. I am still hopeful of year on year mid-table mediocrity and if all the planets align a trophy would be nice…..(never going to happen)
I’m also a geek. I have a love of video games, comic books, animation and virtually anything that you associate with geekdom. Above all that though I am a family man with a wife and 2 children who are my world and seriously impinge on my geek time, it probably won’t be too long til I’m being humiliatingly beaten by my little ones.
What can I do?
I have built websites, emails, homepage banners, landing pages for the web. Also designed for print with DM pieces, retail flyers and a 508pp retail catalogue.
Slightly out of practise, but once more revisiting my love of animation using 3DS Max, Maya and also ZBrush.
I have a good understanding of the printing process, preparing files for prepress. Booking press slots across various process -gravure, digital and web offset. Often conducting press passes and QA of artwork.
I bring a variety of different skills developed over the previous 8 years of work.
- Studio Management
- Design and artwork skills
- Knowledge of print processes
- Understanding of digital work and coding
- Negotiation skills – maximizing cost efficiencies
- Experience of working with blue chip companies
