Studio management

I've got decades of experience running creative studios, and do so on a freelance, temporary or contract basis.

Freelance graphic designer & Artworker

I provide creative and marketing services via freelance or contract bookings.
For creative or digital agencies I work within studios alongside full-time staff, anything from a day up to six months or on a per project basis.
In commercial organisations I regularly work on-site within marketing departments, or ad-hoc on individual projects.

Studio/Traffic Management

I can parachute into an existing team and hit the ground running - organising workflow, staff management, invoicing and liaising with key stakeholders.

Print Design

Over 30 years of designing for print has given me in-depth expertise in large scale production and project management - from 13 colour Flexo to Gold Foil with Interscrews.

Digital Design

Since 1996 I've worked on front-end creative website development, managing and maintaining e-commerce sites. I also work on social, email and html5 integrated campaigns.

Photo retouching

I began as a pre-photoshop print retoucher working on transparencies and negatives and moved to digital over 25 years ago, I retouch and manipulate images for a range of Retail and B2B clients.

Specialisms

I'm accredited by the CIM in Marketing and a qualified English Teacher so handy with copy. I use a wide range of workflow and Digital Asset Management systems (Agility, Matrix and STEP for catalogue production).

Business Sectors

I've worked in every business sector and extensively in Retail, Pharma, Construction, Manufacturing & Technology, Experiential, Education and Third Sector.
