Illustration & Design
"Russell was hired to create the content graphics for one of our digital learning courses created for one of our high profile clients. I found him to be very professional, a fast learner (with our processes and platforms) and accurate with the graphic requirements. The graphics were created as asked for with a high level of attention to details."Allison Pereira - Art Director - Kineo City & Guilds
"Russell designed a comment card, bookmark and book cover for my position as The Steyning Bookshop's writer in residence. As we were producing a self-published anthology, it was important for the cover to look professional. Russell did an outstanding job and I will certainly be using Russell's services again."Elina Dow - Author - Steyning Bookshop
I used a mixture of vertex and sculpt modelling in Blender 3d to create a high detail model of Chris Waltons beautiful concept art "The Bandit Queen"
GSK Elearning Content Graphics
On this latest project for Kineo I was tasked with creating parallaxing image heros and content graphics for a GSK elearning site.
I was approached to create a book cover for Elina's latest work "Bookish: an anthology". I used a hand draw style to achieve the finished "personal" style she wanted.
Hi my name is Russell Dukes. I'm a content creator from the south coast of England. For over 15 years now I've had the privilege of being an active part of the creative industry and have watched it grow. Because of this I have a wide and multifaceted skill set. This allows me to approach, execute and deliver any creative task to a high standard.
I produce everything from freehand/digital illustration and designs right the way through to high-end videos/films and CGI. I'm experienced with a variety of software and hardware from 3ds Max, After Effects, Premiere Pro and Audition to Red cameras, DSLRs, studio/film lighting and capturing chroma key. I also have intermediate working knowledge of coding such as HTML and CSS. I work in all kinds of fields from VFX, film production, animation to graphic design, illustration and elearning. I fill roles such as DOP, Art Director, Film Director, Audio Engineer and have produced content for web based output, TV and cinema.
I've worked with companies and individuals such as, Film Four, ITV, BBC, Sony, Stanley Tools, Las Vegas City Council and individuals/groups such as One Direction, Mo Farah, David Beckham, Klaypex and Brandon Boyd.
