With over forty years experience in the graphic design
industry, I have worked with clients in the retail and media
sector to the corporate fields of the industry specializing in the
creation of logos and corporate identity packages, printed
collateral, and web site design.

I studied at Salisbury College of Art between 1977 and 1980
where I was head hunted, and offered my first post in the
industry at Thames TV prior to my graduation, returning to
take my final assessment gaining a distinction in graphic
design, and becoming a member of SIAD (Society of Industrial
Artistic & Designers).

This first job led on to what was to become a 10 year career
in a variety of award-winning design and advertising agencies
in the London area working with clients such as: Hornby,
Scalextric, Warner’s,
Butlins, Roger & Gallet, Boots No 7,
Mars, Thomson Holidays, Duracell, Tefal, Bass Charrington,
& The Walt Disney Corporation.

It was whilst working for Disney I set up my own design
business here in the Salisbury area in the late 1990’s.

I continued to work commercially for a further 10 years
with the addition of a small commercial printing business
eventually merging with another design and printing company
in Salisbury.

I continued to service a small freelance client base which
included all aspects of creative design, with the addition of
commercial photography. I handled the creative design,
artwork and print fulfilment for Ottakar's Bookstores, with
over 400 stores throughout the British Isles covering all
forms of POS material, and working closely with the major
book publishers. Other clients here included: The House of
Commons, Domino's Pizza, Goldsmith's College, Tate Modern,
David Hockney, Hotel Du Vin,
& Delloits, to name but a few.

I now continue to work on a freelance basis here in Salisbury,
offering a full creative design service, delivering both creative
and high quality design solutions at competitive rates,
coordinating all aspects of a client's project from concept
through to the supply of photography, copywriting, web design
and print.

I am also a painter and illustrator and regularly hold exhibitions
of my work. I work in both oils and watercolours with an
illustrative approach to both mediums and in a variety of
styles from loose abstract to photo-realism.

I also sell a selection of works as 'open editions' online as well as through a few major retail outlets in the UK.
Limited edition and original watercolours as well as Lino prints, can also be purchased via the shopping section to my website - www.simonhowdenartist.co.uk
