Hello, I'm Stewart and I'm a Digital Media Consultant, Strategist and Designer. I'm also Operations Director at NeverEverMedia Ltd.
As an owner/director of NeverEverMedia Ltd. N.E.M. is a one stop shop for musicians and artists both local and internationally. We offer a complete music industry package from teaching, recording and rehearsals, all the way to artist management, video production and social media strategy. Whether you are just starting out in your musical career or are an established artist, we are there for you. We currently work from our main studio in Guildford, as well as our sister studios in Reading, Bali, Helsinki, Chicago and Bergerac.
As a designer I specialise in modern responsive web design. I also have designed graphics and artwork for posters, logos and other things for a variety of different companies. I have run promotional marketing and advertising campaigns for clients large and small from personal trainers to breweries.
With almost 6 years experience in the mobile phone / technology industry, the majority of my other knowledge is based in mobile devices but I’m always looking to learn and expand my knowledge in other areas to increase my chance of future success. I'm an enthusiastic and experienced worker with a proven track record of team development and delivery of results.

As a singer-songwriter embarking on a new musical project I approached Stewart / NEM to design an online platform through which to raise awareness of my music, drive streams, downloads, interaction and to begin developing an online brand moving forward. One of the best decisions I have made. Not only is Stewart a technically gifted website designer, he also has the knowledge and aptitude to support with long-term online presence legacy and strategy whilst simultaneously providing best value advice and a range of website management options. Stewart worked with me to deign a user friendly site that fulfilled both the style and functionality I was seeking in a very efficient manner, being highly responsive to amendments and queries throughout. Beyond all this, he's a thoroughly pleasant and personable chap, which always helps ! I would not hesitate to recommend Stewart/NEM to any creative artist, business or organisation seeking to develop a website and online presence.
