My name is Dominic Hurley and I have set up running my own business‘domhurley.co.uk’ under an initiative set up by Rotherham Princes Trust.

I have become very involved in web page design and have several pages under construction at this moment.

My own site that has work that I’ve already done, work I’m in the process of doing and my CV and portfolio can be found at www.domhurley.co.uk.

I graduated from studying at The Sheffield College, for a HND in Design Communications.

My HND course at the Norton Centre of Sheffield College was designated a ‘Centre of Excellence in Design Education’. The course itself, related very strongly towards industrial needs, it included live briefs set by the design & communication industry and nationwide competitions.

While at College I embarked on a placement period at Sky Television where I was involved in creating the opening sequences for television and films.

Quite a bit of work was done in the news section where everything had to be kept up to date using the software systems that they used.

A 3 month contract has just been completed working at the BBC in Leeds as part of the online team. Here I was heavily involved in the running of the web site that is www.bbc.co.uk/leeds. I feel I became an integral part of the team and gained valuable experience of the BBC working environment.

A number of the types of software I have become proficient in the use of include Dreamweaver, Director, Firworks, Flash, Freehand, Photoshop, Quark Xpress, Premiere, cubase and cakewalk.

My main computer is an apple macintosh but I also use a PC as my second computer.
I have my own work already but I just feel that the media world will quickly pass me by as things are changing so rapidly these days and I don’t really think it is the time to work in my own small environment.

I would appreciate the opportunity of showing samples of my work from my portfolio, maybe during an interview, if that can be arranged.

Yours Faithfully,

Dominic Hurley
