I was working for a global company in London when I decided to take a deep breath and set off on the adventure of starting my own business. After a good success working on the rebrand of the City of London culminating in the logo and corporate identity for the city of London Police force.
I moved to Italy in 2007 and opened a studio in the hills outside Padua. It was extremely challenging to come to a new country and find new customers, but none the less I survived and now have a solid customer base. I have a good track record of customer loyalty and finding new ones thanks to the quality of my work and the competitiveness of my price structure. I work freelance or with a team depending on the size and complexity of the project.
I am fully conversant with Adobe Creative Cloud. I have a good working knowledge of PHP, jQuery, video encoding, CSS3 and HTML5, web standards and cross browser / platform adaptation using responsive design solutions. UX Concentrated.
My career has been not only about design as along the way I have held several managerial positions and I have experience in managing some of the busiest bars and cafes in London and creating teams that work hard under pressure. To add to my range of experience I have worked as a Captain of a Barge taking tourists along the Rochdale canal in Hebden Bridge dressed in period costume (1800’s), worked in the Theatre back stage building scenery and Roasted Coffee!
My Skill set:
- Identity design
- Graphic design
- Event Planning and management
- Web design
- Online marketing
- Corporate video production
- Copy and Marketing text in different languages
When I am not creating I try to be as active as possible. I am an Instructor in Climbing and Alpinism for the Club Alpine Italiano in Padua and Captain of the University of Padua Dragon Boat Team. I also love walking with my Border collie everyday!
