LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF
My name is Wayne Barron and I am a creative professional, providing freelance services to design agencies, packaging developers, photography studios and direct to companies. Now celebrating over 20 years in the graphic design industry, building on my exceptional reputation as a reliable and experienced freelancer. I have meticulous standards and an eye for detail, with skills including:
Retouching | Visualising | Artwork | Design
My portfolio extends across all industry sectors and different forms of graphic design, from product packaging for household brands like Waitrose and Danone, to promotional material for international corporations like Sony and Sky. I love being able to bring design concepts to life, and I am proud that my creative skills have enhanced renowned global brands.
OUTSOURCE YOUR ARTWORK
Working remotely enables me to help clients wherever they are located, but I’m equally happy to work on-site (I am centrally located in Wokingham in Berkshire, within easy reach of London, surrounded by Hampshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire). My home-based studio is fully-equipped with the latest Adobe Creative Suite software on an Apple Mac system. Fibre optic broadband enables high speed file transfer, or alternatively I can visit the client with a portable drive to accept the brief.
It is vital to develop a trusting long-term relationship with my clients, by giving regular communication and updates. Most of my clients have relied on my services for several years, often becoming great friends. My ever-expanding network of contacts has been built purely through recommendation, with introductions to new companies when my existing contacts change job positions. Many of my freelance positions have been extended into on-going full-time freelance roles, and I often become an invaluable member of the team.
As an accomplished user of the Adobe Creative suite, I have high skill levels in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign.
I am always interested to hear from design agencies and photography studios that would like to outsource their artwork, visualising and photo retouching.
MY PERSONAL WORK ETHICS
To provide consistently reliable freelance services, whilst taking pride in my work and delivering files to the highest standards. I endeavour to fulfil the brief within the allocated timescales, without sacrificing my meticulous attention to detail. Personally I aspire to continually improve and develop new skills, ensuring I am always on top of my game, and strive to become an asset to any design studio and a trusted member of the team.
Climate change and global warming are currently the biggest threat to humanity and the natural environment. In the past the graphic design industry has been responsible for producing excessive waste, with product packaging especially being a huge global problem. I feel that it is our responsibility as design professionals to try and reduce our impact, and devise sustainable solutions. With vast experience in the packaging industry, I am currently exploring environmentally friendly alternatives to existing unsustainable packaging problems. Always keen to expand my knowledge, I love to connect with like minded people who are also passionate about reducing our impact on the environment through sustainable packaging innovations.
