About

I became interested in computer graphics after co-founding an online digital-design community ‘www.gfxskool.com’ in 2005. In 8 years we grew to well over 16,500 members world wide and were a flourishing community of artists from all creative fields. I used gfxskool.com to help me learn digital imaging applications, and not just the usual suspects like photoshop. The forum opened my eyes to all types of digital art and graphic design, I was hooked at a very early age. I was heavily inspired by the DeviantArt scene, especially http://www.depthcore.com/. I loved the 3d, fractal and abstract digital styles. After finishing school I studied graphic design at Worcester school of art/design and passed with 3 distinctions obtaining a BTec national diploma in graphic design. On my first day of college my lecturer threw some design books on the table for us to read and I picked up the biggest and boldest looking book 'Attik Noise 3.5' and the rest was history. I then decided to move to Huddersfield where The Attik design agency were born. I completed my graphic design degree (BA Hons) at the University of Huddersfield in 2011. I have continued to reside in Huddersfield where I have been working as a designer for 8+ years since graduating and have had 4 design positions in various companies. However I now work as the sole graphic designer for Robert Scott & Sons in Oldham. www.robert-scott.co.uk

My other creative side is music. I am a DJ/Producer of jungle and dub/roots reggae music and a vinyl collector. I am also involved with a hand built reggae sound system, and events promoter. I manage an online radio station www.bassport.fm and broadcast every Friday evening 7-10pm.
