  • Description

    Hi, I'm Luke. In March 2019 I decided to quit my old life to begin an adventure travelling through South East Asia, which would last a whole year. I volunteered in many amazing places, counties and helped some awesome individuals and organizations. One of the best experiences of my life so far! Due to corona virus my plans to continue got postponed but I manage to escape the UK in mid November to continue doing what I enjoy. 🙌

    I love the outdoors and when I’m not working on my laptop I can usually be found waking in the stunning countryside of my home town and surrounding areas. I enjoy all things creative; anything art, design, music or nature related and I’m in! I used to run a small art gallery, encouraging local artists to exhibit and promote their works, embracing many artistic mediums from traditional paintings and sketches, to computer generated master pieces. Quirky kiln fired ceramic ornaments to micro-living art gardens! Spoken word (poetry) and live acoustic evenings. Everyone involved from the artists to the public were able to experience a diverse selection of art that they might not have ever seen or heard before if the gallery didn't exist.. It raised community spirit, the artists confidence and and brought people together over similar interests.

    I'm here looking to share in different cultures, experience new things with new people and give something back. I'm open minded, curious and believe there is always sooo much more to learn. With over 10 years experience working in the marketing and design industry it's again time for me to explore different parts of our wonderful world and hopefully help out along the way.

    I don't mind getting my hands dirty when it comes to manual labour, whether it be cleaning, gardening, decorating or digging, if you think I can help, I'll put 100% effort into whatever needs doing. On a more technical note I'm happy to share my design expertise whether that be creating logos, branding, marketing materials, website updates or promo videos.

    So if your are looking for some help with any of the above I'd love the opportunity to contribute to a project.

    Thank you for taking the time to read a bit more about me, please check out my workaway feedback from previous hosts in South East Asia.

    Have a great day.

    Luke.

  • More details about your skills

    Hi, I'm a graphic designer by trade. I enjoy making physical things too. I'm experienced in the following software and am happy to pass on my knowledge. Adobe: Photoshop, In-design, Illustrator, After effects - I can help with company branding, logos, marketing collateral, website presence, social media, signage, instructional info, design concepts, promotional videos and more.

    I'm quite handy with a real life paint brush too and enjoy painting. I also know how to handle a spade, trowel and wheel barrow. I’m brilliant at knocking things down with big hammers and then clearing the rubble away. I'm hard working and enthusiastic. Cooking and cleaning has got me this far in life so I think that's a skill I have mastered. Oh, I enjoy playing the guitar - whether or not this is a skill, I shall leave up to you to decide ;)

    I've also recently completed 150 hour TELF course and would love to help you to learn English or become better with the language if you'd like. My strengths are in design/marketing areas but i'm always happy to give 100% to any job that needs doing.
