Ancillary

As part of my skills in design and print I can also offer a range of additional services developed during my career such as artworking, copyediting and consultancy…

Artworking

If you require someone to make an existing design print ready, need a tidy up of an existing project or general artworking support, then my artworking skills are at your disposal.

Excellent cross-platform skills in all the latest packages, a meticulous eye for detail and my sound design background are the qualities necessary to help in such circumstances. I am conversant in:

  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Powerpoint
  • Dreamweaver
  • Acrobat
  • XHTML and CSS (XHTML 1.0 and CSS 2.0 validation standards)

Some of the organisations who have benefited from my expertise:

  • Aegis Media
  • CBS Outdoor
  • Fresh Creative
  • Fast Floor
  • SAS
  • Perspectives Red Cell
  • Lloyd Northover
  • Kickers
  • Camden Design and Print
Copy-editing/Copywriting

Design is all well and good but if the copy is not grammatically correct, the tone of voice not appropriate for your audience or it just doesn't persuade then I and my contacts can help.

As a designer I provide a basic copy-editing service which forms part of the design process. I have often been asked to look at the quality of copy and help suggest better ways of saying things as well as going through supplied copy with my 'grammar head' on and refining copy so it flows much more smoothly.

For those instances where a full copywriting service is required - from writing copy to conducting interviews for case studies and writing SEO content for websites I have access to a professional copywriter who I have worked with.

Consultancy

If you need just some general advice on your existing branding, identity, presentation or other element then I am available to provide some sound and practical suggestions to help you get the most out of your existing materials. If you are conversant with design software then you can take the advice and apply the suggestions yourself or I can help adapt existing designs.
