CV (Curriculum Vitae) / Résumé
I am a freelance artworker/designer with over 25 years experience in the Advertising and Graphic Design industry.
I have worked in high pressure environments where deadlines are paramount and attention to detail is a must. Having organised and run an artwork studio, I can see a job through from initial layouts to complete finished artwork. I am quite willing to take ownership of a project and see it through to completion.
I'm proficient in all the usual software packages such as InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop, Quark, Acrobat and PowerPoint. I am available to work on a freelance basis either from my base Shropshire or at an existing artwork studio. I am willing to work anywhere within a reasonable commuting distance.

Head of K7 Fast Track Design & ArtworkWolverhampton
Headed up Connect Advertising’s dedicated fast-track design and artwork service. Working closely with both Account Handlers and Art Directors to produce quick turnaround artwork for clients including Dolland & Aitchison, Tarmac, Countrywide Country Stores, Weston Park, Calor and Goodyear. Many of these clients have existing brand guidelines, which I was able to follow (and adapt where necessary) to produce the required brochure or advertisement. For Tarmac I also produced interactive, navigable PDF’s of their brand guidelines.
(Jan 1995 to Aug 2006)
Ran Connect Advertising’s artwork studio working closely with the Creative and Production departments to produce artwork to a very high standard with a fine attention to detail for clients such as Bentley Motors, LDV, Yale Forklift Trucks, Brintons Carpets, HiQ Fast-Fit, National Express and Sealine. I distributed briefs to my team of Mac Artworkers and checked the work that was produced. Worked on a wide range of projects from brochures and direct mail pieces to exhibition graphics and press advertisements. As the agency grew in size so did my responsibilities and I also managed the IT requirements for the agency, which included negotiating support agreements with IT service providers, sourcing new equipment and day-to-day troubleshooting.

I have a keen interest in books. I also draw and paint as a hobby.
I enjoy playing football once a week and have done for more years than I care to remember!
Otherwise I enjoy spending time with my family, my two young daughters keeping me fully occupied when I’m not working.
