DOWN TO BUSINESS

Originally a Product Design BSc graduate, decided to change field and get into graphic design, mainly digital and that's just where I've ended up. I'm currently a senior digital designer over at Momentum Worldwide. There I work on a wide range of high profile clients (listed below), I'm a confident designer who works well under pressure and meets tight deadlines whilst maintaining a high level of finesse. I consider myself very dedicated and pull my weight especially during pitch o'clock where I'll hang back to make sure no one is left behind and that the end product is of a very high standard. I try and better myself as a designer both in and out of work, by spending a bit of time in different creative channels; be it; designing flyers for bands, sites for creative friends, freelance. I draw inspiration from wherever I can and keep and updated blog/archive of creative bits and pieces I've seen on my journeys on my Pinterest account as well as Tumblr. I also dabble in a little video work which can be seen on my Vimeo account.

THE PERSONAL

I love music, I go to many gigs, and have many CDs, mainly a rocker at heart but I am partial to a little bit of cheese, if it's got a good vibe or beat I'm probably listening to it right now. I've found myself as a front man in a four piece rock ensemble by the name of 'Staring Out The Sun', I guess you could say this is main hobby. Other extra curricular activities include; team sports (bowling, touch rugby, football, table tennis, badminton, basketball, fives), designing, swimming, play guitar as well as all the usual things people like to do (go to the movies, go to a bar, meet up with friends etc).
