What's so cool about me?

Hello, I am Christopher Reinke, a London-based digital designer from Paris.
I have a background in English and French Law (LLB), but wanted to do something creative
so I went on to do a Master in Multimedia at the University of Westminster in London.

For the past 12 years, I have worked on projects for a wide range of companies and
brands such as Disney, Lego, Sky, Channel 4, The Guardian, Microsoft and many others.
I have also worked for advertising agencies such as Wunderman, Tag, Adam & Eve, RAPP, etc.
You can find examples of my work below, and if you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you.

What I do

As a digital designer, I specialise in front end design, either for websites, banner ads, presentations, or interactive projects.
I work essentially with Adobe Creative Suite, especially Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash (even though it is on the way out).
I can also create illustrations in a variety of styles that cover a wide range of subjects (entertainment, technical, e-learning, corporate).
My view is that both design and illustrations are great tools to get your message across in the most simple and efficient way.

What I'm Working On

I have recently started working on a series of low res poly style portraits of artists and people I generally admire and or respect.

They have been very well received on social media, so I am thinking of turning them into limited art prints.

Technical Skills

Please find below a breakdown of my software skills:

Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for years and am very comfortable with it.

Dreamweaver

My main tool for building websites. I can do HTML but find it easier to use Dreamweaver.

Flash / Illustrator

I tend to use both Illustrator and Flash to create digital illustrations and animations.

HTML5 / CSS3

As mentioned earlier, I can find my way around HTML and CSS, although I am more of a front end professional :)

Location

I am based in North East London, near Manor House Station, and I am happy to work from home or on site, depending on what suits the client best.
