Martin Lucas

Hello there, thanks for dropping by!

Work: I'm lucky to be able to work part-time — at a fine art print company — having two days off during the week gives me the opportunity to spend more time with my son, Finley. Watching him grow up has been an amazing experience since he arrived in mid 2010. My 'other' work is website and print design. The web has been a major passion of mine after I graduated from University way back in 2000, I've been working in the industry ever since, either for commercial agencies or as a freelancer. I now specialise in design / builds for individuals / small businesses and frequently use WordPress / Tumblr for them. 

Rest: When I'm not bashing away at a computer keyboard, I spend time with my little family; going out for walks and mini adventures. I also try to watch as many new films as I can, whether big budget Hollywood movies or small independents. As with most things after a family is created, our cinema going as dramatically dipped, but we try to go as often as we can.

Play: Music is my 'non-web' related passion and before Finley arrived I was a regular on the local DJ circuit, I played at a number of bars and clubs in Colchester over a period of 12 years - I even spread my wings as far as London, Ibiza and Washington DC! Since Finley arrived I've gone back to being a bedroom DJ once again, I'm now happy to put together regular DJ mixes for my Musical Rant blog and I try to keep up to date with the scene as much as I can, but going out every weekend DJ'ing until the small hours is a little beyond me now! I also enjoy taking photographs from time to time, I don't take it too seriously and don't have the finances for fancy equipment, but I do really enjoy taking photos with my point and shoot Canon or my iPhone and putting the results up on my Flickr profile. And if that wasn't enough - I also design and sell T-Shirts on my Worm Sign T-Shirts store and design alternative movie posters for sale on my Society6 page.
