PRINT DESIGN & LAYOUT
My experience as a Prop Man and Assistant is informed by my design background. Working in the art department demands quick thinking and a broad range of skills, that's why I'm competent with leading pro digital software solutions, experienced in driving larger vehicles for transport and I run my own personal vehicle as a Prop Man.
These and many other skills/assets, I feel are necessary to consider myself part of the art department personnel and I'm always improving and picking up new skills to enrich the work that I do.
3D MODELLING WITH SKETCH UP
I've been using Sketchup for many years, which was born out of my interest in 3D Working. It's such a widely utilised asset for an art director, whether it's for location recces or set layouts, I've built up a strong skill set in this application.

This is a test model I made of a scaled tennis court stadium. Designed and rendered in Sketchup.

3D MODELLING WITH SKETCH UP
Real world modelling in sketch up, from to scale measurements. This model was created from data gathered on a tech recce.
From those measurements I recreated this conservatory which was a key scene and allowed us to properly visualise the space.
GRAPHIC MEDIA DESIGN
A brief note on design work. This section features personal work & work for projects.
MAGAZINE COVER DESIGN
Sleeves designed and printed to wrap around physical magazines to mask or feature blank inserts.
POSTER & ARTWORK
To take advantage of custom design that's legally cleared and unique solutions for set dressing, something that can be custom designed.
Unique and niche typography designs that can be used for set decoration, whether that's on products or as standalone artwork.
LABELS & COVERS
When implemented, labelling can with minimal effort improve the visual aesthetic of props and decoration on set, making scenes unique.
It's the most niche technique I've utilised and more for briefs calling for specialised custom props. It's beyond coverings as it's a full on craft, delivering truly unique pieces.
MOTION GRAPHIC DESIGN
//Sun composite motion graphic animation, designed for a video installation///
Motion graphics started as a hobby from my interesting in 3D modelling and worked its way into some independent projects. This could be something you're interested in utilising in your own project.
Featured here are digital composites
for a short film and an installation.
DIGITAL MOTION GRAPHICS
Attention to detail informs a functional design process. Designing small animations to be placed on screens on set requires correct resolutions, format options and of course testing.
As well as timings to make sure the animations can smoothly loop for seamless playback. This keeps the device performance optimal and minimises the on-set disruption of having to reset a video.
These small animations are part of a selection I produced to be installed on screens in a small sci-fi set. I love working in the art department because of the broad scope of work and the sheer inventiveness that happens both on and off set.

Drawing from my early interests in animation, I composited 2D artwork into a 3D to create a project concept animation. These ideas are fantastic for conveying ideas early on in the project.
