I have experience in all the usual software’s, Adobe InDesign, Quark Xpress, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Microsoft PowerPoint, Keynote, Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word.
Currently working as a Production Manager focussing on digital print and design within a very large global outsourcing group.
I manage and run the internal print and production facility, handling all bid and bid support related material.
Specialising in creating slideware mostly in PowerPoint but also in Keynote for pitches to clients and generally helping the sales team tell a compelling story of our business to potential clients.
I am proficient in all areas relating to the artworking/pre-press process including Graphic Design, I have a thorough understanding of different print processes and working within their restrictions.
I am a hardworking, and a dedicated team player who’s also not afraid to make tough decisions. I am always looking at new ways of doing things and very open to new technologies, I am always learning.
Slideware is a subject I specialise in. I have the ability to transform hand-drawn raw content and data in a rough sketch format, or complex, noisy designs from roughly laid out slides into beautiful and visually compelling finished slides.
I am competent in the artworking role and taking briefs from Graphic Designers and Art Directors. I then turn their ideas into solid professional artwork for print or digital output.
I have created many graphic projects, ranging from print projects through to posters and clothing.
I am a very keen photographer, I am currently undertaking a School of Photographic Imaging (SPI) course to improve my technique. I also contribute blog articles about photography to the SPI’s website.
