I first got a taste of Graphic Design back around 7 or 8 years ago in high school. Photoshop was what I loved and I'd muck around with it endlessly trying to improve my skills. I got involved in online groups which assisted my development such as BlueSfear and deviantART. I studied Visual Communication in high school throughout VCE and then went on to study Graphic Design at TAFE. I completed a two year course to recieve an Advanced Diploma to become a qualified Graphic Designer.
I wanted to start my own business, so CKGD began in November 2009 where I'd develop it as best I could. Besides doing business in high school, I didn't have any other prior knowledge as to how to start a business. I also taught myself XHTML and CSS to advance my knowledge after what I'd learnt at TAFE. In 2010 I decided to take a short course in business and also took on a short course in PHP. Both improved my knowledge in their specific areas.
Ever since, the brand has grown and I've now got clients both locally and internationally. I've worked at companies such as AFL Publishing/Slattery Media and DNA Communications gaining valuble experience at both. I've also freelanced for Rodeo Agency in South Melbourne. Currently I regularly freelance for CJM Graphics in Moorabbin aswell as design for my own clients. I have a wide variety of clients from wheel manufacturing to coffee production and everything in between.
