I'm a professional in the creative industry with over 25 years experience providing creative solutions for companies such as SONY and Hitachi as well as a multitude of other businesses. I'm considered an expert in all areas of branding, design for print/web/marketing and online communications. I've worked with local and global companies to build their brand through effective design and communications materials on and offline.
Having been employed as a Brand Manager, Art Director, Creative Marketing Specialist and now an independent all-round Brand Consultant I can offer inspiration, practical advice, build your creativity and show you what it's like to work in this vibrant industry.
I've also taught In-Design and Photoshop at Wiltshire College, and written a course on Graphic Design for Bath University. In my career I have mentored young designers who have gone on to develop a successful career in the creative industry.
If your child is studying Art & Design subjects in school I can help develop their skills by showing them how to be more creative, as well as teaching basic typography and layout techniques that will be useful in adult life. Many children prefer to learn through creative media - I can help your child develop more quickly and effectively
For anyone in 6th form or further education I can help you develop your skills with practical knowledge of the design industry - showing you what you can really expect from a career in a creative field. I'll teach you how to use typography, create stunning layouts and how to correctly use the Adobe programmes: In-Design, Illustrator, Photoshop & Acrobat for your projects. If you're thinking of a career in the creative industry the help, inspiration and practical tutoring I provide will really give you a head start. We'll also explore how to use social media for business and what SEO is really all about.
If you're an adult wanting creative inspiration or knowledge of on or offline marketing media I can help you to think laterally and develop creatively as well as teaching you the Adobe Suite programmes you may need to use for business or pleasure. You may be starting up a business and in need of skills or ideas that you can use to develop and market your brand. Or you may be looking to take more control of your marketing rather than outsourcing. As a working professional I can lead you through this process and explain how social media is vital for any business if used correctly. I'll de-mystify all of the terminologies that you may need to use - from squeeze pages to facebook re-marketing.
