About me
I'm an observant, energetic, enthusiastic and creative Graphic Designer. A good eye for detail, with the addition skills of Illustration. I’m also not afraid to be fun and playful with my work if the brief permits it. I have a 2:1 ba hons in graphic design along with 2 industry awards istd pass and a d&ad award, yep that’s right I have a yellow stubby pencil that takes pride of place on my mantel piece. My industry experience is well versed in different areas of design including packaging, apparel, branding and most recently editorial to mention a few. I have an illustrative style, with a love for patterens and typography and a lover of white space where white space is needed. I hope you enjoy my showcase of some of the projects that really highlight my style and versatility.
Projects
  • Claire Bands Rebrand
    Claire Bands RebrandAnother side hustler another rebrand. This rebrand was for a dear friend of mine that over the start of lockdown found herself furloughed due to working in the events industry, so she put all her eggs into her side hustle Claire Bands and main did it pay off. Her brand is very much her and she is the centre of it so the rebrand needed to showcase her very bright pattern loving sunshine personality! While being a voice for her amazing values.
