For almost a decade I have been discovering Graphic and Creative design practices. After Graduating from Staffordshire University with a BA HONS in multimedia graphics I quickly moved into a sole creative designer/producer role at a property company based in Manchester. Since January 2009 I have been busy freelancing, collaborating and formulating the foundations to a creative new media company called funkemedia.
While design methods may evolve constantly, my central ethos of quality design and production take precedent over everything. I tend not to get bogged down too much in jargon, acronyms and ‘solutions’; I find clients prefer simplicity, creativity and someone who knows what they are doing. My approach remains constant; I believe in creating high-quality, creative, dynamic and thoughtful work – whatever genre it may be.
I now work out of an office based in Heaton Mersey, Stockport with my Creative Partner in crime Steven McGuinness where we hope that funkemedia will thrive and grow.
Born surrounding the grey skies of Manchester, I studied multimedia practices at Tameside College. Having fallen in love with all things design I then moved on into higher education at Staffordshire University. It was here that I gained a vast knowledge in many different regions of media design. Now situated back in Manchester I continue to learn and practice everything design. Who knows where or what I will be doing tomorrow – considering that I am involved in such a fast paced atmosphere doors open and elements change on a daily basis. As long as I am keen to learn I will progress accordingly.
