About me
I’m a London based freelance Graphic Designer, with over 15 years’ experience working across corporate, retail, charity and public sectors, both in-house and agency side. I’m a skilled communicator, delivering compelling, user focused design solutions across a wide range of channels. I can interpret a complex brief and produce original and innovative ideas that reflect an organisation and its values. Recent clients include Aviva, DHL, Ernst & Young, Vodafone, Visa, Bank of New York, Ministry of Justice, John Lewis Partnership and Dixons Carphone. I was also an in-house Digital/Brand Designer for 7 years prior to going freelance.
Projects
  • Transport for London (TfL) Pensions site UX/UI review
    Transport for London (TfL) Pensions site UX/UI reviewA speculative proposal on behalf of Willis Towers Watson to review and propose enhancements to TfL's staff pensions web pages. The project kicked off with a UX review (image 1) of the pensions home page and subsequent pages. Following this I created a couple of wireframe options for the home page UI layout (image 2). Outside of the original brief I developed the wireframes into full UI design mockups using Sketch (image 3).
