I now run my own design business after working mainly in London studios for the past 20 years. I have extensive experience and knowledge in most aspects of design and am very pro-efficient in most Mac software. I am a highly focused and self motivated individual who is highly organised and confident in my own ability. I thoroughly enjoy working in this creative, challenging environment and am determined, enthusiastic and excited going into the future.

    “Wow. Steve did an amazing job. This was a complex job delivered flawlessly on time with friendly service. The quality of the work was as good as any professional design studio (which reflects Steve's professional background). Very easy to work with. Great value, great service. Will certainly use Steve for our next graphic design jobs.”

    “Steve was absolutely fantasic. He is a professional through and through - and based in London which is nice. You will not find a better quality provider in the graphic design space and at competitive rates. Why have someone do the work in India, when you can find someone in London that has worked for 20 years in a top firm. No language issues, no problems at all. Absolutely flawless. Everything about the service was great. We made numerous changes and revisions but this was never any trouble at all. We plan on using Steve again in the near future and recommend him very, very highly. Our best experience yet on Freelancer.”

Creative Director

Sep 2011

Although I was offered other positions in London, I took the opportunity to start my own design business. CRE8 Design Studios Ltd was born and my services were snapped up by clients to work on the magazines that were sold off and even now I work for Centaur on other publications on a freelance basis. I'm always on the look out for new clients and projects that will challenge me, help to broaden my skills even further and get a great reputation for being a professional designer.

Graphic designer

Jan 1997 - Jan 1999 (2 years)

I was employed as part of the in-house studio to work on a number of magazines. My job involved the design and layout of the magazines and to correspond with the Editors. This required organisation skills, keeping to tight deadlines, time management and the knowledge of dtp mac software.

Art Editor/Director

My role began with me in charge of designing and laying out two publications that Centaur acquired from Miller Freeman. After firmly establishing myself, I was then promoted and given the role of becoming Art Editor of more renowned publications, one being one of the worlds oldest professional magazines alongside two other well established titles. This role entailed art directing, keeping to tight deadlines, corresponding with all editorial teams, image research, online proofing and liaising with printers.
