I'm Andy Bowden. I am a freelance Creative Artworker and Designer. I have spent most of my career working on both adult and children’s book designs and marketing materials for two of the largest publishers in the UK. I have also worked for Financial Services companies on customer facing publications and brand development.
I am used to understanding client needs and working to fixed deadlines. This requires a mix of strong organisational, time management, and communication skills. I understand brand guidelines and how to implement them. I am adept at problem solving and have a meticulous eye for detail. I can work on publications of any size (from a double-sided flyer to a 480+ page book). I have over 20 years’ experience using the industry standard applications and I am also experienced at artworking in Office 365, particularly MS Word and PowerPoint.
I like to work smart, and that means having – and working with – an extensive network of experienced associates to tap into to give me the extra capacity and that crucial expertise to take on projects of all sizes.
Outside of design, I enjoy watching films, going to the gym and learning to joust.
