I have over the last 30 years been involved in many ground breaking projects with multi-billion dollar companies, particularly in the Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Diamond, Automotive and Advertising Industries. My primary focus has been the development of D’nA, “an on demand Virtual Agency, for
businesses to design and create print ready ads and artwork, without the need for print/reproduction skills”. I have a strong graphic and industrial design background and a full working knowledge of
print processes and artwork reproduction.
Background includes 20 years in International Banking and Equity Dealing, in the UK, Channel Islands and South Africa.
Entered the world of design in 1996 and have taken responsibility for developing spreadsheets and budget allocations for clients. My methodology and identification systems are of great value in the rationalisation and administration of data.
My keen eye and sharp mind allow me to spread my abilities over many areas throughout the design process.
