ABOUT ME

Born & raised in Birmingham, studied in Salford, grew up in Manchester.

So, what about me, I’ve worked in the design industry since 1996. Cutting my teeth on club flyers for the Liverpool and Manchester club scenes. Later on returning to Salford University as an employee instead of a student to work for the Design Team. The Design Team was the commercial design unit within the University. We produced creative and brand-led design work for the University as a whole and the different faculties individually. Launching new courses and departments, advertising new internal and external initiatives. From the Design Team, I joined Meme Media. And the rest is, as they say history.

The last 14 years have been spent working at Meme Media. Primarily in the leisure industry, creating print and online solutions for local and national organisations. Producing promotional & marketing material for a range of different applications, ranging from new fitness classes to national health initiatives and general core marketing to food outlet marketing. National operators and regional councils across the UK. From Edinburgh to Penzance via Northern Ireland and many others along the way. Clients have included, Parkwood Leisure, Alliance Leisure, TA6, Denbighshire Council, Monmouthshire Council, Leeds County Council, South Lanarkshire Council, Blackwater Bars (Panam, Liverpool and Idols, Swansea ), Novus Leisure (Tiger Tiger), Tattershall Castle Group (Bar 38) among others.

In recent years my day to day work has moved more towards designing and building websites initially coded myself but now using WordPress supported by my own CSS coding to create and alter style sheets to produce unique designs that work in the real world.

Over the years, I’ve also worked freelance. Designing & artworking for Argos, Slazenger, Everlast, Airwalk Scooters and BMX & The Manchester Jazz Festival.

Enough about me, take a look through the work and I hope we can work together. If so contact me.
