I'm a motivated and ambitious graphic designer with a broad skill set and a penchant for beautiful letter forms. Experienced at every stage of the design journey from concept and brief to execution and delivery. Laid back guy, friendly and personable with a deep passion for design. I do my own personal type projects, calligraphy, and type design. Also experimenting with Sign Painting and re-learning html/css currently for a bit of fun.Locked Pro Plan feature
I worked for Quiet Storm since March of last year. I was brought in to handle the design team and oversee all materials being produced across print and digital with a creative and visual input on the video and motion graphics related projects also. I worked on both client and pitch work (winning several pitches) and strived to bring the overall work quality of the agency to a higher standard. During my time there I managed 2 junior designers helping to develop their skills and manage their workflow. I worked alongside 2 Art Directors and 2 Creative Directors lending my strengths where I could and solving problems as and when they cropped up. I also introduced new filing systems, a new server set-up and printer system to better facilitate the company and it's growing needs as their previous systems and facilities were grossly ineadequate.
During my time at Ichi I was a key player in concepting, developing and producing various branding and promotional elements for a range of video-games across multiple platforms. My focus was creating brands that felt a part of the worlds and environments of the games. Working with the developers from an early stage allowed a certain amount of influence over certain elements within the game such as colour palettes and even stylistic features in the actual game environment. I was in direct contact with clients and developers throughout each project to ensure I got the assets I needed to meet the brief.
I filled a duel role in ODD as a middle-weight artworker as well as Design and general technical support for the art directors. I was required to manage print jobs, work with layouts and design logos and store window displays, print production and preparation as well as educate the staff on how to use the creative suite efficiently. It was a trouble shooting and design role which I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of.
