Shift Active Media

Freelance Graphic Designer

During my time at SHIFT active media, I worked on a variety of projects that evolve around cycling based marketing and design. Projects such as image design and development for Colnago, assidence on the GCN project (global cycling network) and designing SwiftCarbon's 2013 Boucher and new bike frame graphics. Not only did I get an even better in sight to working on multiple jobs in a short time scale, but also gained a more useful understanding of the requirements of a graphic design/ art director. (A keen eye for detail and a basic understanding of Pantone colour books being just two examples)
