A true idealist, I believe design and art direction is my purpose in life. Gaining skills in new areas of creative, strategic and content production, I’ve proven to myself that I can generate an effective solution to any brief be it digital, film, motion or content generation using drive and passion. Not afraid to put the laptop away and use hands on analogue methods for more authentic execution. Currently I'm experimenting with Audio Production in Reason and video processing to offer more diverse, bespoke responses to client projects.Locked Pro Plan feature

Following the year one degree introduction and topic overviews, I was keen in keeping a focus on experimentation, channeling my studies toward Branding and Web Design. Learning key skills in HTML, CSS and Flash development for my 2nd year, to facilitate plans for external final year projects. Taking on the option to do 70% External work and 30% Personal work in my final year, I won 2 clients to develop brand strategy, identity design and web applications. My final year study topic was Branding with special interest in Semiotics. Achieving a 2:1 I was selected with the other top graduates in the country to showcase our work at the New Designers Exhibition in London. Taking place over two weeks we met with designers and other professionals from Print, Web and Packaging companies. Conversations with scouts from Nokia and Sky being most notable, which is where first contact was made for my future employment with Sky.
The course gave an introduction to Art & Design disciplines including Graphic Design, Photography, Painting & Drawing, and Sculpture. I then specialised in Graphic Design producing a range of projects leading up to the final production of a magazine. All content was shot and drafted by myself, based on the visit to New York City in July 2001.
