About me
Available for commissions. Having completed my BA (Hons) Graphic Design course at the University of Suffolk my ambition is to build a successful career as a Graphic Designer and creative. I acquired a wide array of skills in creative problem solving at UoS and feel fully equipped for my next step into the design industry. I am a proficient problem solver who enjoys a creative challenge whether it be digital, printed or hand-crafted. I always search for opportunities to broaden my knowledge of both the creative industry and design by acquiring new skills. I have a strong interest in simplicity and believe it has the power to articulate an idea in a concise, effective manor. I love to explore the use of wit within graphic design. In my opinion, I find that wit allows an idea the chance to create a ‘smile in the mind’.
  • Protest By Design
    Protest By DesignIt's black and white! Climate change is real and it's time to take action! With the global protests and the rise of Extinction Rebellion, there has never been a better time to use creativity to promote and call for change. In response to the crisis, the folks at Glug Events set out to compile the world's largest online database of protest posters, from which anyone access and use. In support, I created four typographic posters which are available from the database.

  • Made By Elves
    Made By ElvesDuring my time as an intern at Bournemouth based design agency Parent, I took it upon myself to develop an idea for their Christmas card. After studying their existing stamp mark, I discovered that a simple, witty play on it might just do the trick. I presented the following idea as a parting gift.
