With experience gained from working with PDFs and Indesign at Green Star Media, he has developed the skills to create engaging interactive PDFs to be used for online print.


Enjoying the speed and pixel-perfect accuracy of Adobe Illustrator, he uses the application to create icons and drafts of clients’ web and email designs.


With 10 years of using Photoshop, he has become highly experienced with the application. He is easily able to manipulate photography: blending layers, airbrushing and extending backgrounds.


Since his introduction to jQuery he has developed a modest understanding. He is continuing to develop and write in the language to enhance his web projects.


He can style forms, create CSS3 animations, style inline (for HTML email) and, using boilerplate (e.g. skeleton and bootstrap), create engaging responsive layouts for web.


With five years of experience, he has an expert understanding of using HTML to create beautiful webpages and responsive or kinetic email campaigns.



I am a graphic designer and artworker who specialises in the production of: HTML emails, front-end and HTML banners.  I am very experienced with HTML, CSS, jQuery, bits of WordPress and have used every version of the Adobe suite since CS2!

I started out as a freelance photographer and photographic assistant, working on a wide range of commercial projects and in photography studios.  I eventually grew interested in creating icons and graphics for web, while developing an online portfolio.

While working as an artworker on a direct mail campaign, l first had an introduction to creating HTML email marketing campaigns. This was at the time of the emergence of smart phones.  I quickly realised that this was a field that l wanted to work in and combine with the skills that l already had.  So l took an internship with a web design company and, six months later, this led onto my first job: developing emails and websites.

Since then, l have progressed on to work for agencies designing campaigns for everything from IT, clothing and recruitment to cars, charities and green grocers.

As much as l love the web, l do also find the time for the great outdoors.  I have always enjoyed BMX and mountain bikes, having ridden since my early teens.  I still find time to ride, even during the coldest and wettest winter months, and occasionally undertake the odd challenge.  I have also recently been introduced to running by a few friends and have started to clock up the miles, enjoying the same thrill (if slightly slower) as l get from riding.
