I am a freelance graphic designer with 20 years experience working in the Graphic Design industry. This consists of working for 10 years full time for design agencies, to becoming director of a small design agency and then finally freelancing for the last 13 years.

My work consists of mainly design for print including  - logos/corporate identity, packaging design, brochures and posters and exhibition design. I have also blogged for several years on the subject of graphic design and more recently on idea generation and creativity.

I have created a course to go step by step through the process of logo design, which includes showing a briefing taking place on Skype through to how to generate ideas to the final logo. It also includes advice on quoting for design.
