Graphic design background
Over the last 22 years, I’ve worked in Adelaide, Sydney and now the Sunshine Coast. For 8 of those years, I was the brand manager more many national accounts at BMF – Agency of the decade. I learned the Advertising business from some of the top creative directors and art directors in the business. Before that, I worked as a freelance illustrator and art director in Adelaide, 8 months at TVSN in TV graphics on the Photoshop animation team, as well as a stint at New Idea Magazine.
One of my proudest achievements was developing, promoting and creating my brainstorming ebook – Extreme nouns. This book has sold hundreds of copies worldwide. I had to promote the ebook myself. So this gave me a great chance to immerse myself in Google Adwords, analytics and social advertising.

How to get 2,000 web visits a year?
I specialise in digital design. But apart from that, I’m also a business owner with a few websites and social media that generate my income. So for my business to flourish, I keep an eye on maintaining, improving and growing my online presence. It’s in my best interest to be up to date with the latest trends and technologies. By staying in touch with technology and good design practices, I successfully grow and maintain my own small businesses. The results speak for themselves. I have 2,000 web hits a year and growing. This translates to phone calls and business every week. If you’d like the same results, let me show you how. Phone me on 0414 505 393.
Small business web solutions
The first thing I do is to take the time to understand your business. I help you uncover the essence of your product and discuss the best options to grow your online market share. A good brief and a detailed company profile can go a long way to help get the process started. Some key questions may go like this.
- What do you want to achieve through your advertising?
- What is your competition doing
- What makes you unique in the market place?
- How are people likely to discover your business?
My end goal is to exceed your expectations, and instead of just giving you what you want, I’ll also deliver what you need. This is done by understanding the big picture stuff. Before diving straight into a WordPress site, logo design or an advertising flyer, I use my experience and training to define your business. This is achieved by using a clear brand message and call to action. Because without a clear brand and strategy, graphic design is simply something that looks nice. So if you want more relevance, more profit, more client interest and ultimately a higher market share within your industry, I advise you to take the time to talk to an expert in digital design and advertising.
National experience for Sunshine Coast locals
I’ve had a long and successful career so far. Most of the big-name national clients were during my 12 years in Sydney while working at BMF Advertising. BMF was Australian Agency of the Decade at that time. Some of our clients included; XXXX Gold, Commonwealth Bank, Renault, Foxtel, Aldi, McDonald’s, Toohey’s Extra Dry, MBF, BPay, The Smith Family, Dominos, Elle Bache, Ikea, plus a bunch of others.
I was on my way up the corporate ladder in the biggest agency in Australia at the time. But just when I was peaking, I had a major health scare. Plus I’d started a family, and space in our apartment was running out. For both of these reasons, I decided to slow down and move out of the big city.
So these days I run my own business on the coast. You’ll find me working on web site design, high-end branding, and digital illustration work. Plus an hour or two training up on the ever-changing world of technolgy.
I have 2 types of clients. The first is small marketing companies that outsource specialised skills like graphic design, animation and illustration. This great because we speak the same language and I get to add value to their businesses. But what I really love is working with smaller local businesses with start-up branding, social and WordPress. There is something great about growing ideas from the ground up. I love taking an abstract idea and making into something real.
