About me

I’m a creative problem solver. First is getting to the best solution to the problem, then the right design execution will follow. Based in Falmouth, Cornwall, I work remotely for London agencies, for myself, and in design studios closer to home. After five years at JKR Global, London, I’ve developed an expertise in Branding and Packaging. I’ve created brands from scratch, refreshed brands who’ve lost their way, and built on well established brands with fresh ideas and new directions. I believe in “ideas first” design that challenges the norms to create work that stands out.

    • Full Time
    • As a Senior Designer at JKR, I helped to lead a team of designers. This included mentoring more junior team members, leading projects creatively, overseeing and art directing projects through every stage of production from inception to outcome, and ideating and creating design myself. This was alongside continuing in my role as Brand Guardian of Snickers and Hippeas, in addition to becoming a Brand Guardian for M&M’s.

    • London, United Kingdom
    • Full Time
    • As a Graphic Designer at JKR (straight out of university), I was dropped in the deep end as one part of a two-man team (the Design Director and myself). This meant that I was immediately entrusted with a lot of responsibility. I worked on the initial concepts and eventually oversaw the entire production process across multiple brands and projects. In this position, I became the Brand Guardian for both Snickers and Hippeas. Working simultaneously for these big and small clients was a great learning for me.
