About me
Digital Art Director with a focus on graphic communication and identity systems. Since graduating from the London College of Communication (UAL) in 2015, I was scouted by digital studio, where I'm currently positioned as the art director. Working primarily with global cultural organisations (museums, galleries, archives, collections), I’ve had the opportunity to lead UX, UI and art direction for a variety of institutions across the world, from New York to Hong Kong. I'm responsible for the production of visual communication and user-interface design. My role also includes leading and supporting UX design, information architecture, usability testing and developer support.

  • Media MajlisMedia Majlis is the first museum dedicated to media in the Arab world. Opening its doors for the first time in 2019, this website is intended to be a key companion to the exhibition content and its interpretation, understanding, and reception by visitors. The website has been designed to complement the interconnectivity of the content, as well as take the user through it. It is a fluid space in which collection objects and their connections enable clear user navigation between them.
  • Asia Art ArchiveHosting one of the most valuable growing collections of material on contemporary art from the region, Asia Art Archive seeks to act as a catalyst for new ideas that enrich visitors' understanding of the world through the collection, creation, and sharing of knowledge. Keepthinking designed and developed the new website, creating closer links between the collection and the stories around it, with the Qi CMS used for collection management, as well as web content management.
