About me
I’m a director and creative working in TV advertising, online and social content, PR and branding. I’ve created work for a number of advertising agencies, broadcasters and clients, winning multiple awards along the way. More recently I've also been working as a writer and artist on a range of projects, from comics and animation to book design and packaging. My first book 'Lost Property' was published by Nobrow and was nominated for a British Comics Award.
Projects
  • The Dots x Pinterest - Reimagining Christmas
    The Dots x Pinterest - Reimagining ChristmasVery chuffed to be one of the 5 winners of the Reimagining Christmas campaign. My chosen brand was Birds Eye Peas and I used a combination of real peas and hand-drawn illustration to try and capture the spirit of what’s important at Christmas, this year more than ever - togetherness.
  • Fair Trade Mask-Making Campaign
    Fair Trade Mask-Making CampaignVery happy to have created the artwork for this leaflet supporting a mask-making initiative by Just Trade and Lost In Samsara. It’s available to all members of the fair trade network BAFTS. Check their feeds to buy one of the beautifully made masks and help support the campaign.
  • Cover Versions Exhibition
    Cover Versions ExhibitionI was a part of this inspiring project created by Robin Harman. Fourteen artists were tasked with redesigning an album cover of their choosing, resulting in an exhibition at Orbital Comics in London and a print run with proceeds going to Brain Tumour Research. I chose Sign O’ the Times by Prince.
  • Lost Property
