I am a freelance designer based in Pembrokeshire, formerly London and Hertfordshire. I've been creating and producing original website design, graphic design and design for exhibition, display & print media for over 30 years. I have survived several industry revolutions, becoming digital in the early 80s, cyber in the early 90s, open sourced and content-manageable in the early naughties. I can therefore offer vast experience in:
start-ups & gallery sites to e-commerce & content-managed sites;
company stationery, leaflets & mailers to full coporate branding, literature,
annual reports and style guides; and
point-of-sale and large-format displays to bespoke stands, event design and promotion.
producing bespoke charts, graphs, maps & complex mechanical, geographical & scientific drawings for numerous publishers including Design magazine, The Guardian newspaper, The Science Museum, as well as London's top publishing houses, charities, trade federations & voluntary organisations.
SEO & Online marketing
I have developed effective strategies for Search Engine Optimisation and have achieved page one in Google for key search strings for a number of local and London city clients.
Modelmaking, metal & resin casting and finishing
I have had the good fortune to work with Narberth-based modelmakers, Autodromo, on numerous occasions and for some very specific projects so I could argue my case for adding to my repertoire too.
