I started my freelance career under the name Circlebox in 2008, and have never looked back.
I launched Circlebox Creative in 2008, straight out of college. During this time the company has been based in Cambridge (England) and Melbourne (Australia), but I am now finally settled in Manchester (England).
I have worked with individuals, self-funded startups, investor-funded startups and well-established companies of all sizes, from all around the world. There is no 'standard' project. Projects have consisted of one-page website redesigns to year long full-time contracts and regular retainers. Clients I have worked with have been in various industries, such as Fintech, eCommerce, Real Estate and Virtual Reality (VR). No matter the client or the project, there's always one thing in common; to work with the client to create the best possible experience for your users and customers.
I work remotely from my home office based in the great city of Manchester, England. I am always up for meeting my clients face-to-face though, whether to scope out a project, or just meet for a coffee or beer.
My current tools are a top spec iMac 5K & MacBook Pro, Dotgrid.co books for hand-drawn wireframes, Photoshop for image-editing, Sketch for designing interface, InVision for prototyping and Slack/Skype for communication.
