With an honours degree in Graphic Design, Tim Parker built up a successful creative design practice in the UK from 1988 until settling in Cairns, Far North Queensland, with his family in 2000 and establishing Pembroke Graphics. The emphasis of this business has been to provide high quality design solutions for small to medium-sized businesses, government agencies and not-for-profit organisations through an excellence in a wide range of computer graphics applications matched with a well honed design flair and artistic creativity.
Since arriving in the Far North Tim has specialised in producing pieces of graphic communication for print media and interpretive signage as well as for the web. Pembroke Graphics collaborates with other locally based creative professionals, such as copywriters and photographers, as well as IT professionals, printers and sign manufacturers – drawing upon the wealth of local talent and expertise to fulfil the demands of projects large and small.
Pembroke Graphics has been successfully meeting the creative needs, in both the print and digital media, of many and varied enterprises ranging from engineering, tourism and bio-tech to education, not-for-profit, local government, state and federal government agencies.
Tim also has a background in illustration, having being regularly commissioned to produce drawings, cartoons and maps. These artistic abilities very much influence and complement his approach to the creative process. As well as creating design solutions for the printed media, the business also extends it’s services to the creation of WordPress websites.
Since 2007 Tim has collaborated in the publishing of a series of wildlife books, Wild About the Tropics, centred on the rich and varied wildlife of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and Great Barrier Reef.
A keen cyclist, Tim has worked with the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation to help promote the annual Cardiac Challenge Cairns to Cooktown cycle ride, since its beginning in 2007, by designing advertisements, banners, logos etc and generally helping with the design stuff!
