MY
Services

I have a diverse
blend of talent that allows
me to offer a wide
range of services.

I have worked in the Graphic Design industry for over 20 years (still find that hard to believe!) and in that time have had the pleasure to work on some very exciting projects for some fantastic clients.

My approach has always been to create the best design I can, for the most reasonable price possible.
I am aware of the extortionate prices Design Agencies can charge, and so pride myself in offering a very professional service for a fraction of the cost of an agency.

Whatever your project, I will work closely with you to ensure your expectations are met and exceeded.
I like to keep in contact with my clients after the work is finished, and be on hand to ensure any changes are catered for and that my work is still working for them.

I specialise in
Poster, Leaflet & Flyer Design, Logos, Corporate Identity, Stationery, Magazines, Brochures, Catalogues, Packaging, Large Format Graphics, Vehicle Wraps, Menus, Book Covers, Advertising (online, printed and TV), CD Covers, Record Sleeves, Illustration, Website Design & Development, Photography and Search Engine Optimisation.

Accomplishments

I've been very fortunate to work on a great number of fantastic projects, for both small and large organisations, but the project that really stands out for me was when I designed the necktie for the 1999 Treble winning Manchester United team. My design was all over the media for weeks to come, and it was very humbling to see my design worn by the players, manager and officials.

I have also created designs for the England Rugby and Cricket teams, as well as domestic football clubs such as Liverpool, Arsenal, Celtic and Rangers to name a few.

I have done work for various high street brands, international music producers and DJ's, local businesses and national toy stores.

Currently, I am the sole Graphic Designer, working on all the design material for the Great Yorkshire Show held in Harrogate every year. I create everything from newspaper adverts, posters, flyers, social media - right through to the television advertising.

If you think we could work together on your next project, please give me a cal
l or email me and I'd be delighted to discuss this with you.

Here, take a look at my CV!

 

Having worked with Chris on a number of projects,
I can
highly recommend his services.
He has
always delivered a quality product.

other
interests

i like all things design,
but i also have other
interests and passions.

As well as Design, my other major interest is House Music. I love to buy as much music as I can and enjoy making mixes.


Click below if you'd like to have a listen to any of my mixes! They're good. Really, they are! Simply click on the name of the mix!

I also have a weekly slot on internet radio station FreezePeach Radio every saturday evening from 9pm - 10pm where I play yet more of my mixes!

As well as mixing music, I can play a few instruments - not to the highest of standards admittedly, but I can knock out a tune. I can play the Keyboard, Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums, and I suppose we could add the Tambourine and Triangle to that list!

Other interests include sport, including Golf, Squash, Tennis and Badminton that I enjoy playing, and Football that I enjoy watching. I am a big fan of Bradford City, but please don't let that put you off!

I also enjoy walking, theatre, travel, eating out and socialising. And sleeping!...
