My name is Callum Cussen, and i'm a Graphic Designer with a love of creating a experience though design.
I'm a down to earth guy who loves the small things in life. I spent many years racing mountain bikes and touring around Europe, which introduced me to graphic design through biking magazines and clothing. Then I began my obsession with Dirt Mountain Bike Magazine, I was amazed with the visuals on the front covers and knew straight away that I wanted to start creating images like the ones in the magazine to inspire other people.
After I graduated from University, I started my graphic design journey at a children’s magazine company, DJ Murphy and worked on; PONY, Zelfs, Shopkins, Strange Hill High, Trashpack, Animagic and Horse and Rider. This led to new skills creating different layouts and adapting to different markets.
Currently I am living in Hindhead, England and working for Omega Partnership, expanding my knowledge and skills; designing brochures and branding, logo design and producing art work.
Recently i have started to focus on looking for more freelancing work to expand my skills and create relationships with new people. I am driven on progression.
To create artwork that will create an emotion or an experience to inspire.

My favorite project so far:
This was a personal project which I created when I was learning a new skill. I am normally attracted to editorial design with a word becoming an image, I look to create more work like what I am inspired by. however so far this is my favorite project because I connected these flowers to the initials of somebody very close to myself. Which created a emotion to the work. It encourages and inspires myself to make more work like the above.
I'm currently updating my portfolio website, and any feedback would be much appreciated.
