Paul Jamie Kidd

Award-winning senior creative designer based in Lincolnshire

“I’m an award-winning Freelance Creative Designer. I am incredibly passionate with all things design related in particular Branding and Web Design and Development. I create pretty vectors and pixels for large international brands, startup companies and anything in between. I am a borderline jobsworth. I just love designing things!”

Where creativity and dedication are paramount

When it comes to creativity, I think it’s safe to say I have it in abundance, I just Love designing things! Ever since I was a kid watching World Cup 90, I developed a passion for designing football kits, the creative process always fascinated me!

The journey to where I am now started when I completed my A-levels, I gained a Distinction in HND Media Production at Grimsby College and went on to complete My degree in BSc Media Technology where I was awarded a 2:1.

The following years took me to work at some of the leading agencies in Lincolnshire and I have been fortunate enough to be play a key role in working on a wide range of multinational companies such as Mars Drinks, Virgin, Nicholas Deakins, Hein Gericke, Holland and Barratt and MTV.

At the age of 32, I was incredibly keen to explore the possibility of becoming my own boss, so formed KidDotCo along with my brother, Mike. While building and maintaining an eclectic mix of clients that include The EFL, Live Nation and Sampler, we have created our own range of educational apps, Ibbleobble. Built from scratch, we now have over 20 Apps in the App Store and growing at a steady pace. Since it’s launch we have won numerous awards and our work has been acknowledged across the globe.

I would say my passion lies with all things creative and would say my strengths are in brand creation, I am what you would describe as an old school multi-skilled creative, where I am equally comfortable with all aspects of design and have an extensive knowledge and experience of web design and development. Building high-quality responsive web solutions using XHTML, HTML5, CSS and on the WordPress platform.

So, why am I good for you?

Firstly, I like to make sure all clients get the full package and not just a generic one! I make sure all of my services and work is tailored, one-of-a-kind and suited to the client. Secondly, I treat all clients’ companies like they are my own. I make sure I use all my care and passion into making each project the best it can possibly be. I listen, I advise and search for the best solution.

A geek at heart, I have a scary amount of Kidrobot products, support Manchester United and once had Mike Tyson request a custom-made My Hangover Hoody.

Feel free to check out some of my work.

Bye for now!
