Let’s get in touch

Hi, if you find any of my work of interest, please use the link below to send a note, enquiry, or just to say Hi.

I work from home in Blundellsands — a little haven nestled in between Southport and Liverpool, North West England. I’ve used graphic design tools in IT for well over 30 years, since the days of Corel Draw, Artline, Micrographx Designer (before it became part of the Corel family), Macromedia Fireworks and Dreamweaver and of course all the Adobe products, including Illustrator and Photoshop. I have used layout tools, sometimes called Desktop Publishing tools, such as Ventura, PageMaker, FrameMaker, QuarkXPress, in the development of print-ready commercial documentation.

Using tools including the above apps, I have produced graphical designs as well as user manuals, technical manuals, sales brochures, flyers, etc., for the following customers: Electronic Data Systems (EDS), Manchester; Schwans Consumer Brands, Leyland, Lancs; Computer Sciences Corporation; IT Services (formerly a division of BNFL), Risley, Warrington; Cooperative Bank, Stafford; Pearl Assurance, Peterborough; Health and Safety Executive, Bootle; JBA Software Products Limited, Studley, etc.

I’ve also written industry-standard code using Microsoft Visual Studio and C#, but find I always gravitate back to my design work.

I have a diploma in Graphic Design, with a distinction, along with IT qualifications in Computer Science, Microsoft C#, and network design.
