Hello, my name is Carl, thank you for visiting Red Lime.
Please enjoy looking around and if you have any questions, please contact me.
A LONG CAREER IN DESIGN
I have been creative for as long as I can remember. My passion for drawing as a nine year old led me to study Graphic Design and Photography after I left school.
During my long and successful career as a designer, I have been fortunate to have had opportunities to explore my creativity through many mediums; Print, Web, Interior Design, Photography, Animation and of course Video. Whilst I have worked on many Blue Chip Brands, I have always felt that there is greater reward in what can be achieved for smaller organisations/companies etc.
CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL
My natural ability to understand colour, composition and what makes good design sense have been instrumental in my career, but, listening, understanding and interpreting the clients brief (or Bride and Grooms requirements) are critical assets too.
I always knew that one day I would run my own company, in fact I think my first Boss (Tim) even told me it would happen one day - a great guy who taught me so much and who I cherish as a dear friend still.
As a Graphic Designer, time is money, deadlines for magazines do not wait. You have to learn to work quickly and accurately. This means, even today, I deliver Wedding Videos, Commercial Video or whatever I am working on - FAST!
Red Lime only accepts a maximum 15 wedding video productions a year. This ensures each and every Bride and Groom receives my utmost care and attention in the production of their Wedding Video package. Working on a wedding video whilst it's still fresh in my mind and delivering before the memories of your special day fade are part of how Red Lime work.
Commercial video projects also takes up a large portion of what Red Lime produces. Interview videos, company promotional or product videos as well as music videos. The diversity of commercial work and the challenges to meet the clients brief are something that has been part of my whole working career as a designer and creative person.
Whilst photography is not a large part of what I do at Red Lime, we do get asked quite often for a variety of photography work. A particular passion for Events Photography; be they social, music, performance, commercial or sports are a particular favourite. Much like a wedding, there is only one chance to get the shot in these situations and I love that challenge.
So, what happened to that nine year old artist? Well he enjoys finding time to draw for commissions or pleasure - I have a website dedicated to my drawings here: www.syres.co.uk
One other member of the team is Linda. My wife, friend and rock. Whilst she does not have a day-to-day role in the business, she joins me at Weddings, where she can be found behind the second camera providing lots of great additional footage.
