Artwork & Origination
Whether it be brochures, newsletters, website content or product collateral, I can help provide you with original and effective artwork and origination.
I produce regular colourful and informative newsletters, e-newsletters, business card and logo designs. I specialise in formulating website content that garners attention and a call-to-action and regularly provide clients with brochures, product sheets and advertising material.
I also provide a comprehensive photo-restoration and retouching service and offer assistance in blending images and extracting specific images from photos.
In 1994 I began work on innovative software and business model for a photographic restoration system called Photopages (later PhotoWonder). I managed the engineering, development, sales and marketing teams of this project from its inception. During 1999 I developed the franchise in the United Kingdom and completed the franchise package including authoring the manuals and support marketing material.
The growth of the photo restoration business was rapid and in 2002 a landmark sales and distribution agreement was signed with Creekside LLC in USA. I established large computer studios in New Zealand, China and India using my software and techniques to service the growing market developing in the USA. Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Albertsons, Best Buy and many other major chains now use this photo restoration service exclusively. Further distribution agreements were completed for Japan, Asia and Europe and this service is now the world’s largest photo restoration provider.
I can restore and enhance ripped, creased, damaged, dog-eared, discoloured or spoiled photographs - so that they are good as new! An opportunity to beautifully enhance your precious memories. The service is inexpensive, comprehensive and quick!
I can now take your treasured photographs, certificates, awards, and other memorabilia - and carefully remove the wear and tear of time so that they become a faithful enhancement of a memory that continues to live.
If you were married in the 1970’s, you may find that your colour wedding photographs have dramatically lost their colour – indeed often they and other photos taken at that time have turned “red” I can restore them to their true colours! I can also take your old black and white photographs and with direction from you, recreate the colours on the day or perhaps you are looking for that sepia-toned “antique” effect.
I can remove scribbles from your cherished photographs - in pencil, ball-point pen, or markers. Even paint and other damaging spills! I can remove “Red Eye” a common problem in your flash, leaving your subjects with the eyes that are theirs!
If you’re unhappy with the way your digital photos came out? I can make the photo the way it should have been!
I provide a personal, comprehensive service at very low cost (he will restore photos for whatever your budget can afford – just ask)

From time to time I have been asked to create special publications to support a certain campaign or to provide a marketing tool for a product or service. For example, I commissioned to create a publication to ensure that the need for insurance was not forgotten over the holiday period and that would prompt people to consider insurance as soon as they returned from their holiday - I created, designed and published a holiday book, "Time to Think", full of puzzles, facts, trivia and thought-provoking material (click on image to see the full booklet)
I designed and published the black booklet on the History of Hirstlens (CONTACT LENS EXCELLENCE) on the occasion of buying the laboratory
