ABOUT CROSSFADE PRODUCTIONS

Crossfade Productions was founded by Barnaby Oakley in 2015. Endorsed by The Princes Trust, I was one of a few in a group of 12 to be granted funding.

Crossfade specialises in graphic design, video editing/animation and sound design, however services for social media marketing, photography and in-house hire are also available.

Whether it’s simply a logo and business card design or full branding, website and product creation, Crossfade Productions takes pride in becoming part of your vision.
 

ABOUT BARNABY OAKLEY

I began my career wanting to work within the music industry and went to university to study Music, however I soon discovered that making money as a musician or engineer was very difficult due to the over-saturation of the market.

While studying and touring with my band, I turned to my second passion as a way to earn money, creating logos and album art for various artists.
This evolved and I decided to start taking online courses in the Adobe suite. Within a few years my passions switched and I found myself enjoying graphic design more than music.


It was at this point I came to the conclusion that I wanted to try and make a business from my work. I went to the Prince’s Trust and was tutored on how to run a business and applied for funding.

For the last three years I have run that graphic design business and worked with a variety of different clients, including but not limited to musicians, models, businesses, salons and online stores.
