About

Hello, I'm Callan! I'm from the UK, and I currently work as a multimedia generalist in a digital forensics company at senior level. I've been involved in the creative technology field for over 10 years now, with a specific focus on learning and presenting information.

I have worked at many levels of education, including Primary - working with pupils including special needs students on the basics of computers and iPads, and University - mentoring individual third year students on final year Augmented Reality projects which achieved First Class grades. I also have experience working within the e-learning industry for 2 years - working with clients such as, EMR, ASDA, ODEON cinema and the National Health Service. I now work closely with Police Forces and Courts to create and find the best ways of displaying evidential material during trials.

I believe my technical expertise combined with my teaching and training experience allows me to help anyone achieve their set goals and get to a level they are comfortable with, even if said person is starting out with little or no skills or experience.

I can teach you the basics and principles of design theory, how to select the best software available (free and paid for), how to utilise the software to your needs, and increase your technical capabilities by combining techniques and knowledge of principles and workflow. I have good experience with web design, web development, Wordpress, Divi, responsive design, layout, industry trends, graphic design, brand design, Blender, Unity, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator and much more. I have a Bachelor of Science in Creative Media Technology.

While I had to cancel early due to life getting in the way, I can say nothing but praise when it comes to Callan. I was struggling on a very fundamental level with basics, such as research and work organization. It sounds almost silly when I say I didn't even know how to start a design project, but Callan was extremely understanding and knew how to help me. Even a few weeks of working on basics has went a long way in making me feel more confident about even attempting to design something. I was also supplied with a lot of personalized .pdfs to provide feedback and explain some of the concepts. I genuinely believe you cannot go wrong with Callan - I would give 7 stars if I could. Again, I had to cancel prematurely for now, but I know I'll be back someday! Thank you Callan!

Responsive, knowledgeable, and easy going. Callan has a great understanding of a wide range of design practices and how they work together. After a few months of mentorship I feel like I have a solid foundation in the basics of front end web design, graphic design, and 3D modeling, which is far better than I would have done on my own watching tutorials!

Over the last few weeks Callan has become a valuable source of information and guidance for me. From discussing career goals to offering his experience in graphic design, web development and 3D modeling, he is extremely insightful and responsive!
