I am a graphic designer with ALMOST twenty FIVE years experience of working in television. I began my career working for Yorkshire Television in Leeds. Two years later I moved to London and after a winter with the Weather Channel I took a job at Sky as a designer and director on the Sky One team, where I worked for three years. I then spent five years working for two broadcast design agencies - Kemistry and BDA - on a range of projects for clients in the UK and abroad. For the twelve years since then I have designed for the BBC’s portfolio of channels and platforms - as well as creating work for other broadcasters.
I have created work for on-air, print, and digital media. This includes logos, channel identity, on screen presentation packages, on-air promotions, title sequences, sponsorship sequences, and automated design systems. As part of the design process I like to generate my own ideas, plan the schedule, and manage the project from briefing to delivery.
I approach graphic design as a problem solving process - using a combination of typography, space, and the visual arts to represent or communicate an idea or message.
