Software, Websites & Applications

I am a graphic and web designer based in Southampton. I have been freelancing since 2016, having dabbled in this since a young teenager making graphics and websites for churches and local businesses. I also run an online shop, Famous Last Cards.

Graphic Design

I use the Adobe Suite (particularly Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat and InDesign, with a little dabbling in Lightroom and After Effects) to design for clients and for myself. I’ve made posters, brochures, flyers, business cards, logos, invitations, social media posts, stickers, clothing, books and more.

Web Design

Most of my web design is done through WordPress, using things like Elementor, WPBakery, Gutenburg etc to create appealing designs. I’m familiar enough with PHP to edit a line or two when a problem occurs, and understand hosting and the backend of working with WP and plugins.

I can also build websites from scratch and I’m very familiar with HTML & CSS, and know my way around Javascript enough to pull basic functions together.

Other Skills

I do a lot of digital painting using Procreate for iPad or Photoshop.

I often proofread and convert word documents into online exam papers for a psychometric testing business.

I manage my own business and fulfill orders, restock, run promotions and analyse sales data – I’m a big lover of spreadsheets, know Excel pretty much inside and out, and make them in my spare time for fun.

I used to run an online magazine with a friend before we both got too busy for it. I’d write articles, manage social media, and set up affilate links, so I’m very familiar with adsense and affiliate marketing.

Please enjoy browsing my work on this site, and get in touch with any questions!
