After over 15 years as an actor, including a number of productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company, I re-trained by taking a Masters Degree in web development at London Metropolitan University. I joined Red Ink Creative as a co-founder around 2001 and have worked in all aspects of digital design and development since then.

It has been a pleasure working with Red Ink, over the years they have designed and managed several websites for me, from a personal website to an extensive Film Festival website which needed regular design changes and updates. They are great designers, work brilliantly to tight deadlines and provide excellent design and website management advice. I recommend them highly.

Thank you to Steve and all at Red Ink Creative.
