I also design websites which gives access to your business 24 hrs a day 7 days a week and I can also host and manage your site yearly so there’s easy access to changes and control 

The backbone of  design, whether advertising campaigns or information graphics, they all need Creative Thinking for a right solution for the client to give the maximum effect to the customer.

I've worked from simple business cards to full scale overhaul of a business branding,!



Websites

Photography was one of my main interests before embarking on a Graphic Design career. Buying my first camera in the 70's and living in Africa gave me a lot of clicks and inspiration.

After learning the traditional way, it was in the 80's when Adobe and Apple revolutionised the darkroom. and finally the digital camera came available!


Watercolours and pen & inks were my main form of illustration.

    Adobe and Apple came about in the 80's and was a tremendous leap for the world of media.
This for me  was pure bliss.

 In the early years, Adobe  inspired me to produce my own style of working and now Ive move on to affinity software produced in UK
