About me

I am a senior designer working in publishing. I have worked on a large number of magazines in both the UK and France, including licenced editions. I work on both templated and full creative designs, including cover work. I enjoy being creative with page layouts in features. I have worked on magazines that span a lot of different genres including, photography, design, health and sport, history, science and technology to name a few. I also work with marketing and events teams to produce graphics for web banners, marketing material such as house ads and event banners and collateral. I love what I do and keep up to date with current trends to keep my design fresh. Always learning new techniques is something that I am also very passionate about so development is key within my roles.
