MY PORTFOLIO

ABOUT ME

My_Profile_Pic

I have been working as a Creative Art-worker, Graphic Designer and now 3D Visualiser since 1989 in the Retail & Entertainment sector. Over the years I have been involved in the creation of marketing campaigns, POS material and Illustration work.

I have a complete understanding of the print production cycle including a good understanding of cardboard engineering and working with materials such as acrylic plastic and metal.

I’ve designed a wide range of brand identities and flyers including illustrations in my spare time.

In 1998 I started using Strata Studio Pro (Now called Strata 3D) to create simple visuals of in-store units and quickly realised 3D modelling was my true passion.

In 2000 I switched to using Cinema 4D R6. Since then I have been pushing my skills in both 3D modelling, lighting and animation. Mainly creating hi-end 3d visuals and animations of in-store POS and store fly-thru’s.

My ambition is to move into Motion Graphics and 3D Creative Illustration work. I spend most of my free time on 3D Blogs and tutorial sites to discover and learn new techniques.

I’m currently working at Tag Worldwide in Clerkenwell.

Slowly working through my portfolio sections… Been a hell of a week at work… Off to Ibiza for a week… CAN’T WAIT! A bit of much needed downtime to relax (and take some shots with my new camera ;-) of corse!) I am planning to set up a separate portfolio for my photos… and not forgetting my animation show reel(s). Have a great weekend all! :-) John.
