Spikyjumper came from an early childhood nickname given to me by my dad who was something of a hippy. Today it's a unique and memorable brand identity for my artwork and design.
I'm based in Reigate, Surrey around 30 miles due south of central London – working sometimes in my garden studio and sometimes in the Dusted studio on Leadenhall Street.
I'm an integrated Senior Creative Artworker. To me this means I can turn my hand to most software apps commonly used for graphic design and work on virtually any type of advertising and marketing channel you can think of – and I can design too. With foundations rooted in technical and creative artworking for print and digital, I have 20+ years of experience with the process, production and delivery of assets, from set-up through quality control to delivery.
Although my skills and experience lie mostly in creating static assets, I have of late been using and teaching myself motion graphics, HTML 5 animation, Adobe XD and Figma – this is a work in progress and area I'm keen to develop.
I've worked freelance and I've been directly employed by independent agencies as well big names like Ogilvy, OLIVER and George P. Johnson.
I studied General Art & Design at Reigate School of Art followed by Editorial & Advertising Photography at the Kent Institute of Art & Design — now UCA.
