About Darren

 

 

 

Over 30 years experience

After achieving a Diploma in Graphic Design in 1987, I commenced my career at Scott Print employed as their sole Graphic Designer from 1988 to 1994. During this time I gained a comprehensive knowledge of commercial printing techniques and practices. Wanting to focus more on using and developing my illustration skills, I joined a small greeting card company in 1994 where I worked for over 6 years. In late 1999, I started my own graphic design business while continuing to work at the greeting card company for a further two years. I now work full time from my home studio. I value the benefits of a life/work balance and in doing so, I manage to spend quality time with my family, while providing clients with top end graphic design and illustration work, as well as high quality printed products.

I love what I do

The saying goes, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. Well, I love creating logos, brands and visual imagery that are the Duck’s Nuts. Nothing’s more satisfying than a client’s reaction when they first see their finished artwork or printed products.

WA Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of designing and producing artwork for the Western Australian Printing Industries Craftsmanship Awards. The awards night is sponsored and partnered by companies who donate their products and services with the common cause of promoting the West Australian printing and allied industries. I have even managed to win a few of these awards myself.

What parts of your brand do I Pimp?

I pimp your all visual assets!

Visual branding doesn’t finish at just your logo or business stationery.

It extends across everything that relates to how your existing and potential customers see your business. Your printed and online marketing, work wear, advertising, packaging, labels, promotional products and signage, all play an integral part of how your services and/or products are portrayed to your target market and customer base.

I make sure that your brand is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also displays a continuity and consistency throughout all your visual assets.

I’m not your average digital designer!

I have awesome skills…

I started in the graphic design industry well before desktop publishing.

My skills in traditional mediums such as pencils, markers, pens, brushes, airbrushes, or what ever else I could create or leave a mark with, has given me the edge in creating beautiful imagery with the digital design and illustration software that we use today.

I love using traditional mediums together with programs like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter to create imagery that’s the Duck’s Nuts!

  • Illustrations
  • Caricatures
  • Photo manipulation
  • Photo retouching
  • 3D logos
  • Animated logos
  • Simple animation and more…
