About me
I have nearly twenty years experience of working to a variety of design briefs in a business environment. This includes 2D and 3D motion graphics, touch-screen kiosks, web sites, branding, bespoke interactive and multimedia CDROM presentations (showing my age here). I have also worked on-site over Europe at various corporate events, exhibitions and trade shows where I have seen my projects implemented in conjunction with stand and branding design, which has given me a first-hand view of how multimedia can be used to enhance and promote specific messages to a wide and varied target audience. I have been freelancing in London for 16 years.
Projects
  • SSE Interactive
    SSE InteractiveFortune Cookie asked me to creative a series of animations for SSE that would be embedded within an interactive presentation for salesman to use door to door.

Taking concepts from Adam at They Creative, I was asked to create 3 channel idents to be used throughout the channel, and also an animated “bug” which sits in the top left corner of the screen. I had great fun on this project, and I really enjoyed working with Adam and the team.

    Douglas S. Morrow Public Outreach AwardSpace Foundation
    As the world celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing in the summer of 2019, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air & Space Museum (NASM) revolutionized the way the public could remember, honor, and share that life-changing moment. Partnered with 59 Productions, the NASM team brought the Apollo 11 mission launch, lunar landing, and splashdown to life, projecting them onto the side of the 555’ Washington Monument. Over several nights, thousands of people from around the world gathered on the Washington Mall in Washington, D.C., to take in the sights, sounds, and celebrations of this momentous human achievement. By celebrating Apollo 11 in such a unique manner, NASM not only recreated some of the “Apollo magic” for generations who didn’t have the opportunity to experience it first hand, but also inspired all those who witnessed the tribute about the promise of space explorations to come.
