Hi my name is William!

I’m a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and web designer based in the North East of the UK.

I’ve a BA Hons in Graphic Design from Middlesex University (Cathill). In addition to an Art Foundation specialising in Graphic Media from Bournville Centre for Visual Arts (Birmingham City University).

I have 8 years of experience as a Senior Graphic Designer in the industry. Working in the fields of illustration, logo design, branding, print production, garment printing, advertising and web design. I’m proficient with industry standard tools such as Adobe’s Creative Suite and Quark Xpress for digital and printed media.

I also have experience with systems and software used in a variety of CAD/CAM processes. These include laser/profile cutting, embroidery digitizing, vinyl transfer design and silkscreen printing. If you’re interested in my services or have an enquiry the details to reach me can be found on my contact page. A selection of work from my portfolio is also available to view.

In my own time I love to create digital and traditional illustrations, including but not limited to pixel art, vector, painting, sketches and 3D. I sometimes post them to instagram if I think they are good enough. I’m a drummer and amateur music maker. I also create my own websites and have some experience in using PHP, CSS and JavaScript.

I’ve been fascinated with computers since I was a child. Their ability to combine graphics and sound in an immersive way is what inspired me to take up a career in the digital creative arts. That and I think they are just the coolest.

Currently I’m teaching myself the programs Unity, Aseprite and Blender in order to create my own games and experiences. Along side this I build retro computers and tinker with old hardware, which I then use to live stream classic video games on twitch. My past broadcasts can be viewed on my youtube achieve.

So if any of that piques your interest there might be some thing here in my blog for you.

Welcome to the scratch disk of my brain!
