Substantial reward is offered in the capture of this 'Gun for hire'. If you are able to contract him, you'll be paid up fully by excellent work.


Here's a few projects I last worked on, covering London agency contracts, as well as my own clients.

Paperhat FTP

Paperhat FTP has been merged from a creative design/marketing agency, and a retouching/cgi agency (David Bailey's favourite!)

Already working for the creative half of this merge, I was tasked with this exicting blank canvas project, to design and build their new site!

I built this using HTML5 Boilerplate. Coded to Ajax content load, using jQuery BBQ for hashchange on page change, it functions in effect as a single page loading site. The work section uses Quicksand to a very interesting engaging effect. Oh, and don't forget the images..!

Advertising Banners

I've really enjoyed working on advertising banners. Fun mini-projects combining design, animation, code and invention. I found myself working on these jobs more and more before I left for South America.

Below are some examples, working for various agencies, such as, AKQA, EHS Brann, Publicis Modem and Dare.

Sorry! The banner links are only available on desktop views supporting Flash.

They're pretty cool though, make sure you check them out!

Aon - Insurance
BT - Vision
BT - Digital Vault
BT - Contact One
HP - Deals
Nike - Run

Tesco - Greener Living

At the time of launch the site cms didn't support flash banners, so these are a series 'old school' gif banners I created as an alternative.






Veet - Wax & Cream
Vodafone - Curve

Some initial animation testing as part of this banner work!

Tesco Greener living

Working for the design and branding agency EHS Brann, this was my last London agency contract before moving to South America.

I spent 7 months on this project, covering the latter part of design proof work, through to launch, and then update and maintenance.

Always happy to be diverse, I also worked on a number of other client projects for EHS Brann whenever needed.

I spent 5 months working for the design and branding agency AKQA.

Originally contracted to produce Flash banners for a Nike, upon completion I was quickly retained to work on the new Fiat website.

I typically created Photoshop layouts continuing the site concept design, attending project meetings and working to briefs. As is fairly usual, I worked on other AKQA client projects whereever needed...

Mercedes Benz - Print Retouching

The last agency role I worked at purely in a retouching role was for the iconic German advertising agency Springer Jacoby, producing an accessories brochure for Mercedes Benz.

Although this contract was quite some time ago now, my photoshop retouching skills aren't something I've ever lost, and so I wanted to represent this work here still.

I'm not actively pursuing retouching work right now, but I do have an old CV website (BC - Before CSS!) that continues to gain me projects.

Design & Visual Concepts

The design brief we established for this site, was to be fairly design minimalist. The primary focus was to be the project imagery.

The text content here needed be stripped back and ultra concise. Discussing the core fundamentals of their services, and clarifying Design & Visual's high expertise and major showcase works.

Work on this site also covered extensive retouching to correct and enhance photography shot in less than ideal conditions. A library of eshot campaigns and mailing list management was setup. Continued support is provided in updates, new eshots, and PPC management.


I been developing and designing for web for over 12 years. Originally apprenticed in the print industry 17 years ago, my skills soon evolved into design and development. I now work predominantly as a creative front-end developer. My work often covers a wide scope of design, development, consultation and support.

Being a bit of a 'devigner', I'd say my design skills bring an extra level of understanding and solution to my development work.
