The work I do includes designing and building websites, email templates and other web related content, as well as working across all aspects of print media from illustrative art prints to adverts, flyers, posters, documents amongst others.
I am also an illustrator and graphic artist with the ability to create bespoke, colourful artwork and graphics to help bring your website and your work to life. A selection of my illustrative work can be seen in my gallery below.
My clients include authors and publishers (Nick Hornby, Penguin), charities and social enterprises (The Social Investment Business, CAF), political movements and organisations (the Labour Party, Wake Up Europe!, InFacts, All Party Parliamentary Groups) helping them to create functional, aesthetically pleasing and engaging content.
I have been working as a freelance Graphic Designer/Web Developer since 2012. In that time I have worked with a wide range of clients, on a diverse range of projects.
The Social Investment Business are a fund manager providing nance for charities and social enterprises. My role there was to create in house graphics and online content for the company’s various needs.
Mr Site provide an all-in-one website building package. My role there was to design and build html templates to be used within their system as well as work on branding and marketing materials for the company as a whole.
iCrossing is a Brighton based, digital marketing company. My role there involved using design in conjunction with web analytic and user experience data and paid and natural search techniques to produce websites, widgets and other online and offline content intended to increase a companies visibility and drive more customer activity.
Wake Up Europe! are a group of journalists who believe passionately that the European project, despite it’s imperfections, is vital to our future and worth rescuing. Through debates, workshops and screenings of their film ‘The Great European Disaster Movie’ they hope to “engage fellow Europeans on how to build a new Europe that works for all of it’s citizens”.
They approached me to design and build a website that would allow people to be kept informed about their activities, learn more about their work and host their own events.
The Curzon cinema in Soho is currently under threat of being demolished to make way for Crossrail 2. In a bid to raise awareness of the beloved cinema’s plight, cult film curators, Midnight Movies staged a one off screening of John Landis’s cult classic, The Blues Brothers.
To promote the event and to liven up the interior of the cinema, they asked me to design four posters, executed in a stained glass style, aimed at helping transform the venue into The Triple Rock Baptist Cinema.
The posters would feature The Blues Brothers as well as three other films, previously screened by Midnight Movies, namely Suspiria, House and Labyrinth.
Liam Byrne is the Member of Parliament for Birmingham, Hodge Hill. I was asked to design and build a website that would make it easy for Liam to keep his constituents up to date with his latest work, writing and research. The site also needed to be able to host petitions on relevant topics and have a comprehensive contact form that made a distinction between constituents questions and enquiries and other submissions. All submissions via contact or newsletter sign up forms had to be recorded in an installation of CiviCRM, the open source customer relationship management software. This would allow Liam and his team to keep an up to date record of all stakeholders and send them appropriate correspondence dependent on previous interactions.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth have a membership drawn from across the Houses of Parliament and, in collaboration with the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI), attempt to forge a new consensus on inclusive growth and identify the practical next steps for reform.
They needed a website that could bring together the various strands of the work that they do, be that videos, blog posts, events or publications and present it in a coherent and easily navigable way. The site also needed to showcase the members of the group and have a prominent newsletter sign up to help build a mailing list.
I was asked by Penguin Random House to build a website to promote the books and writing of the author Nick Hornby.
The brief for the design was for the site to be bold and graphic both in the use of colours and typography. Nick wanted to avoid a cold, digital feel by invoking a more print-like aesthetic.
The site also needed to be fully responsive and had to serve different purchase links and book covers for different regions.
