About me

I am Tsutomu Ishida, a graphic, web designer and web developer, based in Islington, London and sometimes in Iwata (Shizuoka pref.), Japan.

I started my design career late 90's in Tokyo. Since then I have worked for many types of clients and projects for graphic design, editorial design, web design or branding. After I moved to the UK in 2004, I devoted more to web design and web development. I have designed and developed many websites and newsletters as well, including CMS based sites such as Wordpress, Joomla or Shopify. And now I am very happy to provide design works, web development, direction and consulting services to my clients no matter where they are.

I have got great experiences to work creatively and fine techniques for both of websites and print as digital artwork. My creativity definitely came from the japanese aesthetics, which inspired me particularly through my home town's traditional Japanese festival experience (I still go back to Japan every autumn to join it there).

I am a freelancer. I can work very flexibly. I have worked in a team at design firms or media companies in the UK and Japan.
