Hi everyone,

Just a quick hello as time is short (when is it ever not!) but will write a more fulfilling introduction when I have a little time...

Very quick background:

  • 20 years design experience
  • Started by laying out/designing classified ads for specialist magazines before progressing to
  • designing editorial spreads
  • Went freelance for 3 years designing novels, coffee table books and other magazine titles
  • Realised I needed a proper qualification and so went back to college part time, after which, I had to return to full time employment and pass up the opportunity to gain a degree due to financial reasons
  • Worked for a small studio for 7 years, working on many varied areas of graphic design (Press, Posters, DM etc) and became the studio manager
  • Began designing websites 10 years ago and have now moved on to designing web apps with my latest software employers
  • Became Head of Design last year, in charge of a small team of front end developers and designers

Here to spread some love and hopefully some valuable advice to others in the industry.

Oh, and if you snowboard, drop by and say hi :)
