My main niche is as a graphic designer, including advertisement creation, publication layout as well as file preparation for supplying to prepress. I have experience in packages including QuarkXpress, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop (Adobe CS5.5), as well as experience in both PC and Mac based systems – I own and use both every day.
I have found that the knowledge that I gained while working in the print factory has helped me greatly in the design roles that I have held, making me more aware of the techniques available and also able to avoid problems at pre-press stage.
My photography experience was born during school. From then I worked in photographic sales, including Jessops in a senior sales role and also photo-lab assistant manager. I also was proprietor of a photographic studio for several years.
