I am a Multimedia Designer based in Aberdeen Scotland. I have been working with Langstane Press for 18 years, before that I gained various skills working in a mixture of print and commercial companies.
Throughout my career, I have always tried to ensure that the passion and enthusiasm for my work has shone through, although realising creative inspiration doesn’t come without its obstacles! Obstacles such as time management and working to tight deadlines are important in any industry, but the foundations and biggest challenges of Design lie in communication.
For print and Illustration work I favor Adobe InDesign and Illustrator, although I have used QuarkXpress extensively in the past.
I have used a variety of Content Management Systems for both print and web, recently I helped set up the Langstane Intra-net using Microsoft SharePoint with the IT department. I am currently learning WordPress.
When I’m not in front of my computer designing you’ll find me walking in the Scottish countryside or drinking good wine while listening to great music. I have lived in Aberdeen my whole life but have traveled around the world.
