Her’s is the smiling face in front of the camera but she’s responsible for the running of the studio and seeing the creative process right through to final cut.
With many years experience in advertising and graphic design, she has worked with creative agencies over the years. Holding contracts with agencies such as, Brahm Agency Limited, Ad Workshop, Wolverhampton & Dudley Brewery and Empire Stores.
Whilst in Leeds, she held responsibility for newspaper advertising production, as well as being part of the launch team of Next magazine. While in the '90s she held another role as part of the team responsible for the design of La Route & Vertbaudet’s catalogue.
However, time & technology move fast, so following a career break, the old world of print had changed the way things were done, and getting back into things was no easy task, but thankfully Derek the "geek" was to hand!
His eclectic journey through life took him from humble beginnings in Berkshire, to the hustle-and-bustle of New York. A brief stay in Utrecht, then on to London and Manchester. Finally, after a seven year sabbatical in Turkey, he eventually returned to tranquil Yorkshire.
For over a decade his career has been focused on developing his creative skills, making his professional debut as a concert photographer in Turkey, circa 2007.
This led on to developing his design skills, initially as a web designer before turning to more traditional graphic design. Much of his work at that time was for print media and branding, however his strong ties with the technology world has meant that inevitably this would return him to digital projects.
As a videographer he emerged with his first work being projected onto Wakefield Cathedral. As well as work on music videos and several training roles, to deliver National Heritage projects.
