Proficiencies

My hands-on capabilities

My Creative Proficiencies

I have mostly been self-taught; Spending after-hours learning and applying new techniques. Here are a few of my proficiencies and what I can offer as a creative.

Adobe Photoshop

With a great background in the industry, I have finely honed my photo editing and image manipulation skills. With Adobe products being as well integrated as they can I use all vector and pixel software as one unit.

Adobe Illustrator

With the cross-integration of the Adobe suite and the love for illustration and vector artwork, I am extremely proficient in Illustrator. I use this tool for all logo designs and vector artwork. From illustration through to full-on poster and printable designs.

Adobe InDesign

I am highly proficient in InDesign. For all types of layout and mass document designs. The ability to use both photoshop, illustrator and Premier combined with InDesign I can create highly interactive documents.

Premier Pro

A love for film and a need for film editing, I started exploring this tool more and more while I got a better grasp of Social media and festival post party editing. I use Adobe Premier combined with After effects and audition to effectively create a high-end edited video.

After Effects

A love for Illustration sparks a love for making those drawings move. I use Adobe After Effects build awesome motion graphics. Either to use on its own or to integrate with some of Adobe's other editing software.

Adobe XD

Highly proficient in both CMS and custom web design, I also am highly proficient in Adobe XD for wireframing and Prototyping. This allows for both the planning phase as well as the actual site build to go seamlessly. Allowing for structured creativity if you will.

HTML, CSS & Wordpress

I know my way around the front-end a a website and can code in both HTML and CSS. Aditionally, I am well versed in Wordpress and help many clients build sites that can easily scale up or larger sites with all the bells & whistles.

SEO & Digital Marketing

I have a whole set of tools in my arsenal. This allows me to do competitor research, find the right keywords, impliment them on a website, track the performance of all marketing campaigns and adjust the tactic for better traffic and an over-all better ranking.

3D Modelling & Rendering

I have a good understanding of 3Dimensional digital art. I have used some of these tools and I am still in the learning phase. While saying this I am also in the process of learning app development i.e Unity as well as Blender.
