									Mark Barraclough Senior Graphic Designer

           Introduction   Over the last 12 years I have worked across a diverse range of industries
                          including retail, music, travel and the public sector, both in print and online.
                          Print: Accomplished at developing concepts, rolling out campaigns and creating
                          my own artwork. I’m also comfortable leading projects in a client-facing role or
                          working solo. I can write my own copy, although punchy headlines are my forte.
                          Digital: I am purely a front-end web designer. The majority of my jobs involve
                          creating detailed visuals in Photoshop for client sign-off which then get passed
                          to developers. I’ve created user interfaces, been involved with website
                          architecture and have a good understanding of technologies and languages.
