As the domain name suggests, my name is Dan, a Freelance Designer/Illustrator who has just turned 30 (ish…). But still loves playing videogames, noisy fast cars & pizza. Thanks for visiting my new 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’ve 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.
What 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.
Currently I freelance three days a week (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday) and am contracted as a Senior Designer the other two at MyAudience, a Marketing Agency based in Wokingham. I am looking to become full-time freelance soon, so am spending time building up contacts and a client base. I am not looking for a full time role. However, I’m always interested in what freelance opportunities are around the corner. Whether it be branding, advertising, graphic design, web design or even writing.
