About me

Designing promotional material is one of my many strengths, from logo design to visual concepts. Design as a whole, is my passion and ensuring pixel perfect graphics, layouts, typeface and images are created to its highest quality in all artwork is my aim. Although my photo-retouching skills exceed most of my creative abilities, I aim to run in line with the latest in my discipline to be amongst the best.
