What I Do

This is the creative portfolio of Russell Privett, Sydney based Designer and Photographer. I have over 14 years experience in the Creative and Media industries during which I have taken an adaptable, multi-skilled approach to roles for boutique agencies in Canada, advertising heavy weights in London and in my recent work for Australia's biggest radio brands.


Problem solving is part of my everyday work. I want to not only ensure I am solving the right problems in the simplest possible way, but solving them in a way that makes the user happy.

I build clean, concise user interfaces that establish a relationship of trust and credibility right from the start. I work iteratively and mostly in code to ensure flexible layouts that adapt to many devices and screen sizes.

With modern browsers and mobile devises in mind I use HTML 5 markup, CSS 2.1 and 3 for styling and unobtrusive JavaScript to write good code that is effective, efficient, maintainable, elegant.
