Dorian Moore began his working career in the Computer Graphic Centre, Edinburgh, where he learned a wide range of digital media such as Digital Pre-Press, CD-Authoring, Networking and Database development. He consulted and trained clients included Adobe, DC Thomson, The Scottish Office and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

He embarked on further formal studies at Edinburgh University in 1993, starting a degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Maths, but on encountering the World Wide Web for the first time he felt a university course wasn't able to keep up technological development in the direction he wanted to proceed. Leaving the course, his experience expanded into interface design and usability for early web applications.

In 1995 Moore moved to London to join Obsolete, working with clients including Levi Strauss, Nature Magazine and EMI. He also collaborated with one of Obsolete's founders, James Stevens, to set up the BackSpace Internet arts space.

In 1997 Moore then established himself as a freelancer and wracked up a healthy client list: The Guardian, Good Technology, Warp Records, British Telecom, Internet Vision and Ninja Tune. On the basis of the music clients, he set up the award winning Kleber Design with Chris McGrail, which went on to work on projects such as Kylie Minogue, Leftfield, Creation Records, Top Loader, The Beatles, The Designers Republic and the Manic Street Preachers. During this time Moore also developed strategy skills whilst working on online marketing campaigns for Columbia Tri-Star, Lotus, Hewlett Packard and Capital Radio, and Web application skills to create Content Management, E-commerce and Community facilities for clients websites.

Leaving Kleber In late 2000, he co-founded PostEverything with Colin Newman and Tony Morley, and also joined advertising agency Bartle, Bogle and Hegarty in early 2001 as Digital Technical Manager arranging projects from Interactive TV to CD-ROM, games and on-line advertising with clients including Levi's, Audi, X-Box, Unilever and AEG. He latterly moved to Dare Digital as their Technology Manager, and went on to work with TBWA/GGT as their Digital Technical Consultant.

Moore joined SHOWstudio.com in 2003, and has worked with them developing all technical aspects of the website and projects, as well as advising on strategy for advertising and future plans. Moore left to pursue freelance work in 2009.

As well as his work with SHOWstudio.com, Moore recently worked with Japanese company Hostess Entertainment Unlimited developing their e-commerce and publishing arms, with Northern Arts Prize winners Nina Pope & Karen Guthrie of SomeWhere on web and off-line projects, on the development of Grizedale Arts on-line future including their Lawson Park and Toadball.tv projects, with arts & architecture practise Public Works in their ever increasing circles such as Folkestonomy and the Wick Curiosity Shop, with artist Julie Myers, and with Guestroom developing ideas on the future of libraries. He's also working on numerous little projects with friends and family which are documented as a blog of his work and interests.

In 2008 his work for Grizedale Arts' Toadball.tv was displayed at The Royal Academy of Arts as part of the GSK Contemporary Season, including works specifically commissioned for the installation. In that year he also founded The Useful Arts Organisation as a consultancy network to help arts and media organisations develop projects with a technological slant.
