My Bio
Charactir & Myself

I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator & 3D Artist.
(Aspiring Web Designer, Animator & Painter)

Charactir focuses on creating content that delivers your brand or project’s intentions, feeling and motives to its audience. By lining out what makes your brand or project an individual and giving it character so that your audience can empathise and connect. To create a character you need to understand and communicate the finer details, to take care in crafting and empathise with the creation and to fill it with its own unique personality and being.

In my experience in multiple fields including Graphic Design, Illustration, 3D modelling and Web Development, I’ve found that whatever the medium it can manifest a unique quality, but more importantly communicate that uniqueness. With experience stretching over many projects and a diverse field of interests, I’ve found myself in such a unique position to navigate the creative and technical space required to conceptualise new, exciting, relevant and personal content.

Everyone, everything and every space is filled with unique elements that need to be shaped and presented in such a way that they can find their audience. The first step is to be willing to share those unique aspects and qualities. The second step, let me you show your audience that individual quality!

 THE SPOILS OF EXPERIENCE Both to learn how to create a website and to comply with a shoestring budget I had decided to create my own website from scratch. I picked up a course on Udemy by Daniel Walter Scott, on one of the many sales, to learn how to use Adobe Dreamweaver. I slowly worked my way through building the framework of a Portfolio website. Afterwards, I expanded the website with what knowledge I had gained with CSS and HTML. Then I incorporated some scripts I found and repurposed for the web, to further customize the look and feel. Though my pipeline didn’t start with building the site's design first, I was happy to fiddle w

 AN UPHILL BATTLE TO FUTURE SUCCESS What I've learnt as a freelancer / independent designer and illustrator over the last two years, is that you really can't afford not being active on the web and social media. How I started off advertising myself and my design business was by placing a well-designed and creative signage board on a busy T-junction in front of where I live and work. Two years later it has paid off three times with client work. Though it hasn't been successful in marketing me to a broader audience, it still lends my business some credibility and allowed me to connect a physical presence to a Google Maps pin.
