I understand the importance of communication as much as anyone else in this business. Practically speaking I've found special attention should always be paid to making sure that the client communicates absolutely all of his/her ideas in the initial stages of any project. I believe in being efficient, and I'm dedicated to becoming better.
My primary skill is illustration followed closely by Photoshop (which I have been using for about 12 years) - These are the two areas where I am constantly pushing myself to improve and learn.
I'm always up-to-date with current artistic and graphic trends - something I believe to be incredibly important when producing your own visuals that need to become a part of the already existing world.
I've had to adapt and change my styles of art several times to suit a brief, for me this is where a my skill and knowledge of fine art helps no end. If you understand how something is done you can re-creat it in the same style - or anything else in that style!
I have a degree in Interactive Media Management and Web Design - so my knowledge of the internet and computers aids in designing for the internet. I also work as a consultant and/or a graphic designer for two video and media companies which keeps me up to date with all the relevant skills.
