My new website is live!

This week saw the launch of my new website: Go and take a look and let me know what you think. I am offering my design services and building websites under the new brand, and there is also an on-line shop where I will be selling some creative products and artworks, so sign up for the newsletter if you want to be kept in the loop.

The new site also has a blog section, which impacts this blog a little as the focus of this blog will shift mainly to my personal work, while the fromtheartSTUDIO blog will cover all the business and design related stuff. There may end up being some overlap on the two blogs, and I may end up phasing this one out all together, but for now, it stays.

I am rebranding!

I am in the process of rebranding my business. fromtheartSTUDIO will be my new company name - it will provide the same custom website design, illustration, animation and graphic design services that were previously provided under my own name at, as well as offer a few new products which I think you might like. I decided to rebrand as I am wanting to go in a slightly more quirky and creative direction with some products that I am working on, and wanted a name that was a little less serious and said a bit more about what I do. I hope you like it!

The new website is in the works, complete with a fully up-to-date portfolio, and should be ready to launch in July, along with a new website special - drop me a mail ( if you are looking to have a site built any time soon and I'll send you the details. The special is great for start-ups who don't have a whole lot of cash to throw at a website right off the bat - I want to help you get up and running with minimal outlay!

In the meantime, this is a taste of what my new branding looks like. This blog, and my Twitter accounts will be properly rebranded too when the new site launches, so please bear with me if things look a little out of wack at the moment. As always, client work comes first!

Pooch caught mid-shake

Couldn't resist posting this pic of my pooch caught mid-shake after digging a hole on the beach. Love the one-eye closed and helicopter ears. Too funny.

This is what she normally looks like:
