1997 - 2005: The Yellow Studio Ltd: Interior Design & Architectural services consultancy.
Creating my own business started in ‘97 as a sole trader it quickly expanded to a limited company with a co-partner and junior designer. The business was started due to a requirement by clients for a more flexible company to carry out project that were of widely varying sizes and complexities, from simple house & bar refurbishment's to complete redesigns and new builds in the domestic and commercial fields including new green field housing, bars, restaurants, offices, hotels and hostels with budgets from a few thousand pounds up to several million pounds.
The company was successful throughout its 8.5 years of trading, allowing me a career break in Spain.
This success was a direct result of my ability to listen to clients briefs and thereafter supply them with a tailored product meeting their needs, using my skills in CAD and Photoshop for presentation and detailing, as well as verbal and visual presentation skills, completing projects on time while producing a high standard of production information in the form of drawings and specifications.
