I specialize in user interface design. my inspiration comes from a variety of sources, from my operating system to the console on my car, the microwave display and everything else inbetween. I’m fascinated by the complexities of humans interacting with devices, how the almost subconscious movement of hands and fingers needs to be accommodated, but also educated in order to provide the best possible experience. I started out designing interfaces for websites, and still do a lot of that, but recently have been working on game and mobile app interfaces as well.
While my focus is definitely on the design side, I have a wealth of experience developing websites. I write clean and compliant html and CSS code, and know enough about Jquery and PHP to handle most situations. Apart from static sites I also develop wordpress sites, either modifying existing themes or creating new, custom themes from scratch. It all depends on your requirements and budget.
Enough clients have requested print design in the past for me to be perfectly comfortable with it. I use Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, and specialize in brochure layout for distribution electronically as well as more traditional print.
3D Modeling and Animation
I’m a skilled 3D artist, and have worked on projects ranging from architectural visualization to game assets, interface elements and logo titles animated for video. I produce photorealistic renders, and my product visualization is both accurate and aesthetically pleasing. My animation skills are still evolving, and while I’m not quite Pixar-quality yet, it’s a work in progress.
Video Editing and Post Production
I do video compositing as well as post production. Working in Adobe After Effects and Premiere, I can edit raw footage as well as creating eye-catching and vibrant effects and transitions. I also do original music production and soundtracks if that is a requirement.
With over 15 years experience in the industry I am perfectly placed to assume a project management role in addition to my design/development role. With a wealth of knowledge spanning the various disciplines, I understand the flow of a project and the responsibilities of the various players, and am able to make recommendations, do time and cost estimates and manage expectations on all sides.
