My company is Littlepixel Design Ltd, and I create responsive user-experience and front-end design for the web, apps, and all digital
platforms, with an emphasis on function, balance and strong typography. My work isn't solely
screen-based, branching into associated branding, typeface design, design consultation and print
collateral. With over twenty-four years experience in the media industry, and having recently decamped from
London to the Kent Coast, I'm always looking for exciting new projects with enthusiastic people.
I believe effective design should be simply executed, well
considered, and beautifully crafted.
A bit of background:
My experience is wide ranging, working with many clients, from organisations like the BBC, Pernod-Ricard, UBS, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Al Jazeera and the BFI as well as more community-facing projects for NGOs and charities along the way. Pretty much all my work comes from
repeat business or word of mouth, which I think speaks to my skills, quality and value as a graphics
I'm a team person - I love working with good copywriters, illustrators, photographers, producers, marketeers and developers
to bring a project to realisation. I'm big on planning things out first, prioritising function and consistency
across pages and platforms, and always fastidious with the details.
I studied Graphic Information Design at Falmouth College of Art, graduating in 1996 with honours, and have always
tried to work to the courses' credo of form following function.
I've been working as a freelance contractor since setting up my own company in 2006 after a long and rewarding
stint as designer and Art director at London agency Atticmeda.
What else can I tell you?
I work well both with visionary producers and technical developers - a bridge between the two that enables the good stuff
I want your project to succeed so I'm never precious about making that happen. I want your project to work for you. Changes? Revisions? Bring it
I've spent many years honing my craft using Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop, so am quick at getting
projects off the ground and efficient with your budget
I'm used to working on projects of varying size and scope—from small promotional websites for sole-traders and local businesses, right up to large international media sites.
Experience as an Art Director means I can also consult on design matters without necessarily being hands-on.
I often work remotely from my office in Dover, but can commute to your Kent location or be in London in just over an hour
My day rate is very competitive—and (of course) negotiable
