My Experience

    Colin Browne Website Design

    After deciding I wanted more creative control over my work and to explore new challenges, I resigned from The Unlimited. I went back to self employment as a web designer, photographer and videographer. I also have a separate website for my wedding and family photography which you can see here.

    The Unlimited

    Having worked in-house as a freelancer for a number of months at a company called The Unlimited, I was offered a permanent position as Senior Graphic Designer. Having decided a stable job suited me at the time, I accepted the position.

    Freelance Designer

    I left Absolute Digital when the band I was in signed a recording contract. In between tours and recording albums I continued to do graphic design work, my clients included Island View Storage, Rennies Distribution Services and other Bidvest companies.

    Absolute Digital

    Based on my portfolio of private jobs I had done while immersing myself in graphic design, I was asked to join a printing company called Absolute Digital. I was the graphic designer and I ran the wide format printing machine. Whilst there I began doing photo and video shoots.

    In the Beginning

    Frustrated in working an unfulfilling job, I started tinkering with Corel Draw on my brothers computer. I was instantly amazed by the world of creative possibility at my fingerprints. I started picking up design work for clients around Hillcrest.

My Software Skills

I've spent the majority of my career using Adobe software, having done many online courses through lynda.com and studied books. I used to use Dreamweaver and Flash to build websites until WordPress became the best choice for website development.
