What am I good at?
Since college, I have mostly been self-taught in any and all editing software. Spending after-hours learning and applying new techniques and strategies. Here are a few of my proficient capabilities and what I can offer as a creative.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am a big fan of cms and what PHP has to offer for web design and back-end building. However, I am more than proficient in Adobe Dreamweaver and can easily edit and adjust full HTML builds that don't make use of any content management system or pre-coded software.
I am a self-taught Wordpress designer/developer. Highly skilled with custom styled cms builds and many other PHP scripts. An extremely powerful marketing tool if done properly. If not, a site will likely get lost in all the clutter.
HTML CSS & JS
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION
A recent passion for digital has opened me up to an entirely new field. Submitting sites to Google and making sure they get first and foremost... Indexed properly, making use of site auditing tools I do my best to build backlinks and get sites to #1.
As a student of digital marketing and online brand communication. I know my way around Adwords for both keyword research and overall campaigns. Either leveraging a site and giving it exposure for an SEO boost or to get the right traffic through the door.
My previous company was fully focused on Social media. That said I learned a great deal on how to connect to consumers on numerous online platforms. A mixture of appealing imagery and target focused marketing.
A great deal of focus goes into what search engines prefer as well as what consumers find appealing. I know my way around website compression and articles to push engagement. With that, I also understand Google Analytics and the ability to use the data effectively.target focused marketing.
I have a basic 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.
Either hand drawn or fully digital. I am a skilled illustrator that pushes for pristine work. The ability to illustrate vectors come in handy when doing animation and all other forms of design i.e logo design, iconography and much more.
In respect of both my video and 3D capabilities. I make use of cinema 4D for 3D animation work and motion graphics. The seamless integration with Adobe After effects makes it a no-brainer. The possibilities are truly endless.
