As the domain name suggests, my name is Dan, I am a freelance designer/illustrator who has just turned 30 (ish…), but still loves playing videogames, noisy fast cars & pizza. Thanks for visiting my website, I hope you like what you see 🙂
For as long as I can remember I have drawn, made things from cardboard boxes & enjoyed art & design throughout education. I studied BA Hons Illustration at the University of Portsmouth and graduated with a 2:1 in 2005. Since then I have made the move into graphic design, advertising and web development. Both in an in-house capacity and an agency environment. I have also dabbled in studio management (I missed my creative outlet too much) and a bit of content writing for gaming websites in my time too.
Want to know more?
In my spare time I love to play video games – I know, I bang on about it, and blog about them on www.travelsingaming.co.uk amongst other sites. I am an avid football lover, supporting Southampton FC through their highs, lows and highs and lows, again. As well as football, I enjoy to watch a bit of F1. I truly believe that until you see a race live, the speed and power cannot be fully appreciated.
I am a full-time freelancer, with multiple clients across the South of England (as you will have seen on my homepage), including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Reading Borough Council, Marvelous Games, numerous hair salons, a handful of marketing agencies, Monster-Shop.co.uk and more. I’m always interested in what new freelance/contract opportunities may be around the corner, be it branding, advertising, graphic design, web design or even writing, so please get in touch to discuss your projects with me.
