Pete’s core responsibilities at Razorfish involved the design and development of online advertising campaigns.

Razorfish clients included: Mcdonalds, Audi, Blackberry, Microsoft, EDF Energy, Lastminute.com and NSPCC.
Pete began working at I.D.Studios as a graphic designer. His core responsibilities involved the designing or enhancement of existing Micro-sites, Banner adds and Mail-out campaigns.
