Design for TV Film Video Loud & Fast Logo


Biog blog...

I've spent most of my life as Graphic Designer, starting freelance design at the age of 16. Mainly producing corporate identity, logos and desktop publishing layouts for print.

That was until I discovered the joys of motion graphics and studied "Design for Film & Television" at University.

I specialised in Video Graphics, Animation and Editing. Compositing using Quantel Paintbox and Adobe After Effects. Learning to edit using linear suites and on Non-Linear edit suites including LightWorks.

I have worked on Adobe Premiere since 1991, Avid since 1994, Final Cut Pro since 1999. I continue to work on the latest NLEs as an offline editor, online editor and colourist.

Over the years I've worked with many companies and worked my way up the ranks to become Design Director for The Loop in Bristol. In 2004 moved back into the freelance world.

I provide a full service and have all the gear necessary for your desired output whether it be the web, disc, broadcast or film.

What else can I say about myself?

I love the world and learning about all the things in it. I'm a real knowledge sponge especially for the weird and wonderful! So much so that often my pub conversations go down with a raised eyebrow and a sarcastic "yeah right!"...

Oh the universe is so much weirder than you people know!

I find myself playing Devil's Advocate more often than not, as i like a balanced view before i make decisions and half expect people to do the same! :p

I'm an Aquarian and am often shocked at the accuracy of my star sign attributes and my horoscope. I'm also a Dragon in the Chinese Horoscope... Grrrr!

I have a hell of a lot of energy but seriously need to take breaks as I am a work-a-holic, I just love my job!

I would dearly love to make more feature films or work on a really cool series like Heroes or BattleStar Galactica.

If there is anything else you'd like to know I'm a pretty open kinda guy so feel free to ask me.
