…‘Hello…I’m Mark. A Freelance Graphic and Web Designer from Central England. I currently live and work in Wolverhampton and I am passionate about all things design. I could draw before I learned to write, and things haven’t really changed that much since…

 

Proven lead creative with art director experience in an agency environment.

 

I have a real passion for all things creative.

 

A finger on the pulse when it comes to emerging trends and culture.

I creatively push boundaries whilst ensuring the highest standards of design and campaign management.

 

 

I am confident in my creative artwork skills and enjoy collaborating and sharing opinions and knowledge.

I am naturally very thorough and prefer to ask questions about the smallest of details to ensure that instructions are clear.

I am big on the finer points with a meticulous eye for detail.

I am fully design literate in Adobe CS  including InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXpress.

 

 

I am super motivated and a strong team player, who understands how to fully support the account and creative team.

I love to offer suggestions for alternative ways of working.

My chosen career has taken me the length and breadth of the UK and as far afield as the US and Canada. I have collaborated with many creative agencies, printers and publishing houses over several years and my work has been featured in publications worldwide.

 

I spent 6 years enthusiastically working for an awe-inspiring Educational Design and Technology Company based in Staffordshire. I then spent the next 5 years building and developing my own successful brands ‘The Image Agency’ and ‘PrintQuick’ I subsequently sold these companies in 2000.  In 2001 the opportunity arose to head up a marketing team at a family run electrical wholesalers/manufacturers based in the North West of England, marketing and promoting their own brand of electrical consumables throughout their fourteen UK retail outlets. I left the company in 2005 and became a full time freelance graphic and web designer.

 

These days when I get some downtime I can usually be found out on my bike cycling around the country lanes of Shropshire and Staffordshire or mountain biking over at Cannock Chase. I play guitar and have a crazy passion for Middlesbrough football club. When you can find me at home I love to hang out in the kitchen trying to be the next Gino D’ Acampo!!
