In his extensive experience as a graphic designer and web developer, he has worked professionally with industry-standard design applications but maintains a strong interest in free and open-source graphics software.
Ian's first professional role was with a regional newspaper and magazine publisher, where he moved from traditional paste-up work to computer-based design.
