Who am I?
What does 'Creative Designer' mean? It means I tend towards simple, communicative design that puts the user first. Whether that's based in User Interface & Experience Design, the creation of tutorial videos over on TipTut, exploring artistic styles in Illustration, or putting together a product brochure or banner that is print-ready and consumer friendly.
Passionate, cynical and a romantic at heart. I enjoy spending spare time having a struggle snuggle training BJJ, rolling dice and crushing skulls as Fibusan the Barbarian in D&D and exploring life with my wife. The rest of my leisure time is spent reading fantasy novels, making music, petting my cat and trying to not be so consistently grumpy.
I generally and genuinely try to enjoy my work, play and existence.
