My name is Nick Brennan, and I provide a number of design, development, IT and audio services to a wide variety of clients.
I’ve been building websites since the bad old days. I have an eye for design and the technical know-how to handle your job from end to end.
I produce, engineer and master music too, been quite successful with that.

Jack of all trades


(and master of a few)

Print and Multimedia

While my education and background are in Computer Science, working in the creative industries has given me the opportunity to learn a number of creative disciplines and, on occasion, flex my design muscle.

Handling all the IT requirements for a busy London creative agency also gave me an inside-out understanding of the requirements for print delivery, flightchecking PDF and Postscript, using and configuring Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro and Quark.

On the print side I've produced corporate stationery, CD and digital album artwork, brochures, flyers and mailers. I've designed a few logos too.

I've also spent many years working with a number of multimedia platforms, developing reasonable skills in 3DS MAX, Premiere and After Effects, and working to an advanced level in Director and Lingo (back in the day), and Flash and Actionscript.

Key skills:

  • Flash / AS3
  • Director / Lingo
  • 3DS Max
  • Premiere
  • After Effects
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Quark
