about me

the life of a freelance designer

Hi, my name is Patrick. I am a freelance designer, among many other things. I have been in the industry since 2003, after completing my studies at Victoria University.Although I did not study web design, I have taught myself some of the basic techniques and applied them into creating my hand-drawn website.I have worked in a range of different positions, from covering a range of tasks including packaging, CD/ DVD manufacturing, photographical touch-ups, business card design, proof reading and corporate design work including annual reports and internal documents for a range of National and International clients.Apart from design, I am also a licensed security guard, crowd controller and bartender, and I enjoy creating things, either artistically through drawings, paintings or digitally, or using wood as a medium and creating guitars, furniture or anything else I can think of.I also like to record music, and although mostly covers of other songs, I enjoy the challenge of recording everything myself, including guitars, bass, percussion, keyboard and vocals. You can hear a sample of my recordings from the main page. about me

    PS- I see you have images of street art– I suppose that’s may be how you found me through my last post on Melbourne.

    Could you please tell what is the wood you used for the body ? Maybe you said it somewhere but I didn’t catch it …. Tks a lot for your help !

    • sorry for the delay!
      I have used American Maple for these which is rather heavy, but has amazing sustain. Usually companies like Fender use timbers like Ash or Alder for their grain and weight.
      I hope this helps you!
