Hello, my name is Chris Cannon.
I am a graphic designer and web developer with extensive knowledge in on-line optimisation techniques.
My main areas of work include marketing materials such as brochure design, stationery, posters, banner displays, corporate branding, website design, animation and development, email newsletters, dynamic and data driven facilities and search engine optimization . Professionally, I started life as a fine artist, then moved in to graphic design which naturally lead to web design and now dynamic web development, so my day is often mixed between being creative and looking at pages of code.
I have been lucky enough to work with many companies as both an in-house and freelance graphic designer and produced work for a wide variety of national and international clients.
I took the plunge to go solely freelance in May 2007 and I have already achieved success, winning tenders from organisations such as the Arts and Health at the NHS (various design projects and workshop delivery), Artlink Centre for Community Arts (full re-brand and website development), Hull Film (corporate branding strategy, website, brochure, display, advertisements) and Choices and Rights Disability Coalition (fully accessible website and brochure design, which won the “Breakthrough Award for Accessible Information 2009”). I also partner with video and 3D production studios, Interactive web agencies and print houses.
I have 12 years web design experience and overall 24 years experience in the graphic design industry, and although this is a considerable period, it doesn’t stop me from approaching each project from a new or fresh perspective – I never stop learning and looking out for new ideas.
I hope you like my portfolio website and if you would like to work with me then get in touch.
