About me

I am a skilled and experienced Creative Designer / Artworker with extensive international experience having worked in advertising, activation and design studios. Being a self-motivated individual, I am able to work independently or collaboratively with a team to ground out concepts and find fresh and innovative approaches to provoke brand engagement. Currently new in London, I'm exploring new opportunities to expand my design skills in print and digital design and wish to learn more about new design trends across all touch-points. Skills: Brand Design | Social Media | Graphic Design | Art Direction | UX Design Software: Adobe CC InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat | Keynote | InVision | Squarespace
