My name is Tobi Forsdyke and I work as a freelance Graphic Designer. My main client is Wac Arts where I provide a design service to the colleges many departments and supporting staff and students in the use of design and media software used in their media classes. A small PDF version of my design portfolio can be downloaded here.
Primarily responsible for the organisations websites www.WacArts.co.uk and www.WacArtsCollege.co.uk I was also responsible for marketing the colleges high profile 25th anniversary celebrations 'The Full WAC' to local media and newspapers via press packs and promotional merchandise.
Current / recent projects include the WAC Media Player (a database driven mini-site for students video, audio, animation, written and website work) and the user interface for iCritique (a web-based movie database system reviewed in The Guardian). I also worked on the DVD for CHICAM (Children in Communication about Migration) and a redesign of their website.
As well as my work for Wac Arts I also managed a design department called Copyart which provided a public design service to members of the local community. Recent clients include Katina Kangaris Flash site and EP design www.katinakangaris.com.
I provide one-to-one training in Photoshop (and related Adobe packages), Final Cut Pro and Dreamweaver to anyone wanting to learn.
