I am also a strong HTML/CSS coder able to independently produce responsive flat websites, templates for CMS use and HTML email campaigns without technical support. Working with colleagues and stakeholders I take a practical user-centered approach to design, able to create user stories, wireframes and rapid prototypes to produce engaging digital products.

My print design skills include branding, marketing collateral, business comms and full magazine production. I am a capable illustrator and have strong expertise in print production.

In addition to my visual design skills, I am experienced in supporting stakeholders in developing briefs and managing the collaboration process.

Paul has worked with us on several projects and the work has always been top-drawer. As well as his obvious creative talent he also demonstrates a strong understanding of commercial considerations. I particularly appreciate his ability to take a brief and run with it, without the need for hand holding.
