Need a fresh, new website?

Need digital design help for your business?

Designframe also offers professional Digital Design, and Website Design services on a freelance, project, or short contract basis.

Designframe's expertise is in providing the appropriate digital methods to fit the clients' designs, and to deliver solutions with an informed understanding of design and the design process, whether it be print, environmental, video or web based.

With a strong belief in practical, workable design solutions, Designframe draws on twenty five years of experience of projects within the Architectural and Graphic Design industries. Working for `Skidmore, Owings and Merrill`, `Studio 585` and later `Gensler` - all internationally acclaimed practices, on projects for clients in the UK, USA, Europe and the Middle East, I have been directly involved with the production, display and dissemination of digitally produced drawings, prints and brochures, together with digital video and sound pieces.

Clients include:

My experience within the Architectural Industry spanned a period in which design production shifted primarily from manual to digital means, and as a result I found myself at the forefront of new Computer Aided Design techniques, and instrumental in the integration of Digital Services into the Architectural Office.

More recently, I was responsible for digital design services within a large Graphic, Retail and Brand Design Studio, and became a recognised expert in the production of high quality, and compelling digital documentation. I have also provided in-house, group and one-to-one training on Adobe Creative Software packages.

With the ability to draw on my wide experience in various industries, together with an organised approach to scheduling and production, I am able to integrate and deliver content based around a wide variety of digital design software.
