Hi, I’m Chris Dowson.
I’m a freelance creative designer specialising in digital & eCommerce.
I started my career in printing and publishing - expanding into digital design and development and in 2005 I set up my own studio: My First Raygun. I now work on branding and digital design projects for businesses, individuals and agencies across the world.
Here’s what I can help you with:
I have created a lot of logos - I know that branding is so much more than creating a kickass graphic and slapping it on your website header and some business cards. It takes a lot of planning, a little faith and a kick-ass graphic to slap on your website header.
The discipline that started it all for me. I trained as a graphic designer at college and have worked on countless layout projects - both editorial and commercial. I set a mean form, and a killer double page spread. It was my first design love...
Web design & development.
I am an experienced web designer and developer. Whether it's a brochure site, a control panel or a shopping cart, I ensure that it looks great, works well and helps the user achieve your goals.
I have worked on projects for:
Tim Beresford-Brealey Owner Wharf Cottage Kennels
Always a pleasure working with Chris, he has a real eye for the latest design. Would definitely recommend and I intend to use him again for my next project.
