A freelance Creative Director and Graphic Designer with a broad range of print and digital skills gained over 20 years of industry experience. I have recently developed a number of brand identities, including the production of guidelines and tools; as well as social media campaigns, infographics, interactive reports and more. Knowledgeable, open and creative, I am able to solve problems quickly and get the best out of every project through a wide range of skills delivered with high levels of communication and service. Whilst Creative Director at Epigram, I worked with global, sector-leading brands, forming strong, collaborative relationships with senior marketing, comms and BD teams as well as successfully leading a team of designers across a number of accounts, over two offices. I’m someone who walks around with my head-up and eyes open in order to be constantly inspired and open to new ideas.
