My name is Russ Edgar and I am an art director, designer and an all-round creative. I do not see design as something purely aesthetic, but as a functional marketing tool. I am an experienced and hard working designer with a creative eye for detail and an enthusiasm for all design mediums. As an excellent communicator, I am approachable and effective in establishing solid professional relationships. I thrive on working as part of a team, yet remain self-motivated in working autonomously and relish the opportunity to make decisions and think on my feet. Through experience of adhering to tight dead lines and short lead times, I am able to perform exceptionally well under pressure. I also recognise the need for developing and unleashing the diverse talents of others, to offer support not only to the design team, but to other departments, to help produce the best job possible.
