About Paul Skellett

As a freelance graphic / audio designer based in the Derbyshire, UK. Paul has been in the creative industry since the 80's focusing on many forms of media, such as; graphic design, brand creation/development, photo-graphic art and manipulation, audio production and motion graphics/video. His skill sets have been widely used throughout the entertainment sectors, including retail, hospitality, music and publishing.
"For me, the use of both visual and audio tools, analogue and digital, they all seemed to blur in to one great creative toy box. All of the discipline required for audio and visual have a natural crossover, a common language. I never really considered specialising in one or the other ... it's all just one big box of creative tools to me. In my mind it's all frequencies, audio, colour, physical or psychological. I believe that all of these elements are essential for solid designs, audio and visual."
Paul has funded, designed/packaged seven publications, as well as restore and enhance unseen archives of historical photography focusing on The Beatles, John Lennon, The Rolling Stones, The Jam/Paul Weller, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin ... that were used within the publications. Paul was also co-author of The Beatles publications. Along with his former business partner, Paul also co-wrote, researched and designed the worlds most rock and roll, luxury golf book, nicknamed 'the bible of golf'.
On the audio side, Paul's studio is powered by Pre-Sonus, Apple and Native Instruments, utilising an exceptional library of sounds and virtual instruments. Having started in a friends studio producing bands, including his own, Paul developed his own studio and now focuses on soundtracks and sound design.
One of Paul's personal projects is the rewriting, imagineering of Alice in Wonderland. Having written the book 'Alice - The other-side of nowhere', Paul has painted a collection of paintings to illustrate the book, but is also composing a soundtrack for each painting. The book is due to be released late 2021.
