Graphics & Media (.co.uk) is me Ben Nolan. I am not a website that is masquerading as a large dynamic company consisting of many staff. Neither will I try to bamboozle you with slick terminology or American office speak that should be left alone in the 1990s from where it was born.
Instead I like to chat, get on with clients, determine what we have in common (favourite song is good start) and use that as a means to work together. I am an individual that has much professional experience and qualifications within the realms of Digital Media. Myself and digital media were born and raised together from the early days of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, through to the creative music tools of Steinberg Pro 12, Cakewalk and Cubase to the adaption of professional broadcast systems such as Quantel Paintbox, Panasonic D5, Digi-Beta and Avid through to web and Internet technologies.
My CV is below if you wish to know more about my working life and qualifications.

I Will Work For Free! Huh!?
I reserve time in the week or month to work on projects for charitable or community groups. Yes I will work for free on these! As it is unpaid work I have to make it fit around my wage-based work so deadlines can't be a major factor, I also have to be sensible and take one project on at a time.
The only provision is that the charity is small, not a charity that has plenty of resource, the idea is to help worthy folk get on with what they do best doing good work and have something stunning that sets them apart from the big players.
Likewise community groups that consist of people that provide their own free time to do good things for the community. Groups such as these do great work for others and contribute to peoples' lives, so if I can help them I will. Please get in touch if you think I can help, sorry but I can only work on one project at a time.

Can I Help Your Design & Media Business? "This Gun Is For Hire"
If you are a digital media or design business and experience the 'three busses come at once' scenario with client work, then I can help with the outsourcing of work. I like to think I have a good moral compass so be reassured that your clients remain your clients. I would rather maintain a regular relationship and be relied upon by other similar like-minded businesses than gain a new client.
