28 years experience in the Illustration and Graphic Design business has taught me to cope with the time constraints imposed by clients deadlines and I'm used to kissing the wife and kids goodnight for a 'late nighter'. As well as my original skills in Technical Illustration I have learned to adapt and go where the market flows take me. Trying something new does not worry me and often a challenge can make life a bit more interesting. Below is an idea of the kind of Services available.

My skills allow me to create anything from a simple section drawing of a Lock to a Cutaway or Exploded Illustration of an Engine or Gearbox. Information can be taken from Manufacturers Drawings or CAD imports and the Technical Importance of a product can be emphasized to show your product off in the best possible way. I try to recreate a similar feel to Illustration, on computer, that was available before the Macintosh or PC were ever invented!
Corporate Identities, Letterheads, Brochures etc. Anything to promote your business!
My own little success story! The important part of any instruction is keeping, sometimes very technical subjects, as simple as possible and also crossing the gap between very clever Product Designers who could explain how to do it easily with 'Technical Jargon' but have absolutely no idea how to show it to the General Public. Instructions may cover a single picture for a simple subject or cover 100's of pages for something a bit more complicated.
A good, well presented Catalogue improves Sales and Company Profile. I have developed an uncomplicated, clear style for Sales Catalogues and Manuals.
BROCHURES & LEAFLETS
I operate a complete Design & Production Service for Brochures & Leaflets covering any subject to enhance your Product or Company. A full Print Service is also available at reasonable cost.
Advertising has become more and more a part of my business. I am used to the, "I've booked a last minute Ad and it needs to be in London - by 2pm!", situation and am aware of the continuous deadline constraints the Advertising Industry imposes. The advent of Computer Technology and the Internet has helped make delivery a lot quicker and easier.
Artwork produced includes Weekly Car Ads for Car Dealers and Stores, Magazine Ads and Posters for Point of Sale and Exhibitions. I am also occasionally called to work 'In-house' at Agencies to cover whilst staff are sick or on holiday.
Much of the Artwork produced can easily be turned into Exhibition Panels and used at Trade Shows or In Store Displays. I have also Designed Stands for several clients and have produced Artist Impressions for many others.
Design and Artwork for Packaging such as Boxes, Sleeves and Clam Shells etc.
Website Design, Production and Maintenance - This Website is a sample.
I can still produce Illustrations by hand as not all subjects are suitable for the computer. Many Builders still want their House Designs drawn by hand for example.
