About me

Graphic Designer & Illustrator (but most importantly a Cancer!). I’m a versatile creative with experience across a number of work environments. I have a passion for art and design and this filters through into my everyday. Having worked alongside brands such as Lululemon, House of Vans, DirtQuake, Schwarzkopf among others, I am well versed in delivering the creative vision of a brand and enjoy the challenge of working on diverse briefs. I have extensive knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, as well as Sketch Pro3.

          • I worked as part of an in-house team of Graphic Designers, doing projects for both London and internationally based clients such as Stroeck & Ritz Carlton. JHP are an internationally renowned Design agency that specialise in both the exterior and interior of multinational stores and shopping centres - they are responsible for all elements regarding a project; from the building itself to the environment and branding that accompanies it. My role in this position as Graphic designer was to work closely with the in-house Interior designers and Architects to help create an appealing and sellable 'package' that would bring together the project proposal. Daily responsibilities varied from concept sketching for branding and logos, to generation of wall graphics/branded merchandise and print etc - all of which would compliment and tie together the work of the rest of the studio in design presentations for clients.
