Who's Ken?

I'm a freelance graphic designer living and working in Suffolk.
I have over 10 years of commercial experience using Illustrator,
Photoshop & InDesign.
I also have over twenty years experience using pens, pencils, paper
and most importantly my imagination.
I’m always looking for new clients to work with and interesting
projects to work on.

Ken was very good at interpreting our comments and converting them into an image.

He has a real enthusiasm for his work and I would not hesitate to recommend him to potential clients.”
