I produce 2D cartoon illustration and animation design, working on projects through pre-production to final cut. I am a well adaptive designer, experienced in character development, flash design, cartoon illustration, After Effects, and sound engineering.

I have produced designs for mobile and web platforms since 2008, I understand the technical specifications and industry requirements to produce professional and high quality design. My work has been showcased at large commercial functions as part of large accounts, I understand the necessities of delivering professional design at all times and I would not release anything that I felt fell short of this.
I am proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite, in particular Flash and After Effects and I have experience with Toom Boom, Soundbooth, Maya and Wordpress.

Please contact me for a design proposal and a competitive price for your project.

About me //

I graduated in Animation Arts from the Plymouth College of Art and Design in 2008, receiving the highest marks from the course. In 2010 I moved to Bristol to work as a digital designer after a year working as a marketing creative in Plymouth.

My position as a digital designer was for a small agency that specialised in 3D projection mapping. Our clients required corporate marketing strategies for large exhibitions and advertisements, this position required creative idea development and strong characteristics to complete projects in a high paced environment and to a high standard. Daily jobs would be the preparation of motion graphics, rendering, computer mapping and graphic design.

In 2011 I began working on a children's brand called 'Sports Heroes', producing online and offline design to support the companies accelerating growth. I have held this position since, overseeing the production of our pilot cartoon episode and a further 30 more episodes of e-learning animations.

As our sole designer, I am responsible for all artistic content that is associated with our brand. I regularly liaise with our managing director to discuss ongoing projects and new ones. I am responsible for the pre production planning that takes place, whether that be storyboards, layout files or character design, I am experienced and confident enough to do this before having to execute the project in a professional and timed manner. As the sole designer I have to maintain a positive approach and a dedicated mentality to ensure the company meets deadlines and continues to move forward. I have managed many different projects from start to finish, in animation, web design, print & illustration, and gaming.

Outside of work I am part of a small team of designers from other studios in Bristol who work on imaginative productions. We all feel this is a good way to gain new perspectives on design and idea development as well as keeping up to date with digital trends and social media.

I have demonstrated my abilities in design through agency and freelance positions. I am a confident designer, a regular Freelanced user and a reliable and trusted designer.

I have recently relocated to Australia, covering both Melbourne & Sydney.

Thank you for your consideration.
