SERIOUS ARTWORKER freelance mac artworker Edinburgh






Timings tight or an unexpected workload?

Let me fill your empty studio seat, or expand your team instantly.

My skills and 17" MacBook Pro can provide a complete temporary artwork studio if required. I can work at your offices or remotely . . . evenings, weekends . . . all night if required. I deal creatively with the details and technical aspects of artwork for print, allowing Art Directors and Designers to spend more time designing.

Working for Edinburgh design and advertising agencies for over 20 years, with 12 years at Studio Manager level, I have created artwork in many formats, above, below and through-the-line. I am also excellent at altering print assets for online use, and providing artwork guidelines for others.

I have in-depth knowledge of reproduction for newsprint publications and high quality print, matching ink weights to printing intents. I am nuts about type and my pdfs are bombproof, created to meet industry P4P and PDF/X requirements.

A built-in respect for client's intellectual property rights stops me from displaying samples here. However, pdfs and portfolios of work are available so that you can be certain of my claims and that I'll deliver.

My CV is available on request, including celebrity comments from Joanna Lumley and John Peel. You can also find me on-line with some fine recommendations.

If you need expert artwork cover contact me at: or call 07726 337983. I'll make sure I turn the record player volume down when you ring.

P.S. My reputation has lead to me being voted onto The Drum's 'Recommended Freelancers Guide' 2010 and 2011.
