Hi, I’m Geoff Franklin. Thanks for taking the time to read a little about who I am and what I do.
I initially studied computer animation at college to become a digital animator, and not long after graduating, I was employed as a full time 2D Flash animator for Mediasphere. I worked there for almost 7 years, and throughout that time, I was lucky enough to have been given the opportunities to build and hone my skills in a number of areas as the company moved more towards digital design and web solutions.
Part time since 2006 and now full time since June 2010, I’ve primarily been running my own web design and graphic design business, Exist Online. Like running any business, it can take a lot of time and perseverance, but so long as you’re enjoying what you’re doing along the way, that’s always a positive.
Since I’ve been with my lovely
girlfriend wife, Laura Tuton Franklin (and now fiancee wife as of 15/09/2012 1/3/2014), she has encouraged and helped me to grow more as a designer and artist, where she has also inspired me to take up photography.
I’d been dabbling in photography since early 2009, and since then my love for the art has grown, where I now focus mostly on videography. Laura has been a freelance photographer for a number of years. We now collaborate on photo shoots, weddings and other events, where I’m usually the one shooting video more so than photos.
I plan to continue running Exist Online for as long as I can, and carrying on with my photography and video work alongside Laura for years to come. We make a great team, and I love doing something I enjoy with the woman I love :)
Well thanks again for stopping by. Feel free to check out my portfolio and have a look around.
