FREELANCE WEB/INTERACTIVE DESIGNER 2003 – present
After leaving school I studied an HND in Publication, Production, Editing and Design at Dundee College. This course was based around print and helped develped my design skills, but I soon realised I found the posibilities in digital media more exciting. To this end, I then studied a BA Hons in Digital Media in Leeds. This gave me the knowledge and skills to go on and forge a career in the industry, including HTML, flash, actionscript, Director, lingo, general programming and internet theory. After a brief sojourn back in bonnie Dundee, I moved to london where I was based for the past 6 or so years working as a freelance web designer and interactive developer.
Most of my work was completed with a small but highly creative and respected design agency in south london called Raw Nerve, I have also worked for various other high profile digital agencies such as Exposure, Airside, Brandworks, Columns, ABCD and Dow Carter. I am now currently based back in dundee, but still frequently come back to london or work remotely as the situation requires.
