Biography

I have worked as a Graphic Designer since 1987, originally using drawing boards and pre-digital paste-up techniques (Letraset, Bromide Camera etc...).  
 
In 1989 I began using Apple Macintosh Computers for design work which I had first used in 1983/4 when they appeared on the market.  
 
Previous experience in print design includes packaging, marketing brochures, promotional literature and leaflets, exhibition boards, Newsletters, Stationary, Mailers, Corporate Identities, T-Shirt Design, Posters and Programmes from initial concepts to finished product. I have experience in working with full colour design and designs limited to single and spot colours.  
 
Between 1992 and 1993 I occasionally carried out voluntary work with Cable Television crews to learn more about video production and editing techniques.  
 
Left full-time employment in 1993 to study BA Hons Graphic Design as a mature student specialising in Multimedia.  
 
Graduated from Coventry University in June 1996 with First Class Honours.  
 
During my course I carried out freelance work for a number of companies including an electronic publishing company in Kidlington, just north of Oxford, where I was required to produce user interfaces for CDROM products and WebSites being involved with the planning of information access structures and product specification from the outset of new projects.  
 
My thesis centered on "The Changing Role of Graphic Designers in the Digital Age" for which I studied the theories of Human Computer Interaction, over and above the requirements of the course.  
 
Following my graduation I worked for three years in Oxford for companies whose clients include major corporates in the Media and Sports industries.  
 
I first became a member of PanEris in 1997 providing part-time graphic design support to the original team and have recently become a full-time core member.  
 
Software experience includes Macromedia Flash & Shockwave, Macromedia Director & Lingo, Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, Quark Xpress, Adobe Pagemaker, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Dimensions, Adobe Streamline, Avid Media100, Avid VideoShop, Macromedia Freehand, Macromedia SoundEdit, Macromedia DeckII, Macromedia Extreme 3D, Macromedia XRes, Equilibrium Debablizer, Macromedia Fontographer, amongst others...
