Hello everyone I'm Nolan Ward originally from Whitley Bay in the North East, but I now live in a town called Wilmslow in Cheshire.

I am a Senior Graphic Designer for Carbon Creative, my working day involves designing various print and digital media, illustration, xhtml/css coding, flash timeline animation and 3D rendering. Just starting to look at After Effects and more motion design.

My personal website is www.north45.co.uk

Its nice to see so many people from the North East on design forums

Hi Nolan,

Welcome to Design Forums, just to echo Dave's comments above, very nice site and fantastic portfolio, great range of work and skills on show :)

Good to see another member from the North-East, makes me wonder if there's a DF promotion in Whitley Bay that I don't know about :p

Look forward to seeing you around the forums.
Thanks, Greg
Welcome Nolan. It's cold and wet in Whitley Bay today....as usual.
Great work on your site. Liking you illustrations muchly.

@ Greg. Could it be the place for the DF meet up?

Whitley Bay? Sounds like Margate; cold and wet.
Would take me 6-7 hours to get there by car, but I'm up for the challenge of seeing if my old P reg Fiesta can make the distance! :D
Cheers for the welcome messages and comments on my work.

Yeah I'm heading back to sunny Whitley Bay this weekend

Typo I noticed that you are in Marden Estate - I actually went to Marden High School and still have a few mates that live Marden.
