About me

 

When it comes to design I believe the most important qualities after core skills are enthusiasm and inquisitiveness – two qualities that really release the potential of a brief. I’ve spent 10 years demonstrating this; collaborating, conceiving and delivering across a huge array of needs. Experience in, and contributing to, a creative environment alongside designers, copywriters, content strategists and interactive developers. Possessing an ability to see the big picture and continually develop new and inspiring ideas.
