Service Description

After three years of full-time research, lecturing and design work for the University of Cambridge in the UK, I left the 'flatlands' and moved to the Haute Alps of France.

I still work part-time for the university, providing graphic design, research and text for a "popular science" book on British scenery, due to be published by Harper Collins in October 2008. I also provide online GIS support and teach an annual course in GIS-mapping to geology undergraduates.

Ecrins Design is the freelancing half of my business. I believe that my design, research and communication skills are just as applicable in the freelancing world as they are in academia.

I love my work and take great pride in what I do. Please get in touch if you think that I can help you.
