Designer

I’m Chris, a professional, reliable and passionate Graphic, Email and Digital Designer with 12+ years experience in the industry. Working for a wide range of brands covering a variety of sectors including retail, e-commerce and agency.

After gaining a HND in Graphic Design with a Distinction, I immediately landed myself a job in design – the rest is history…see my career path timeline below.  I find beauty in simplicity and adore anything geometrical.

HND

By now, I loved the creative world and all its challenges. From learning about print, to delving into digital design. Thats when I decided to do a HND in Graphic Design.

Sept 1997 - Aug 2002

A-levels

Whilst in high school I knew I wanted a career in design – working with tech excites me. Naturally, my new step was to go to college and study A-level Art and Graphic Design.
