I'm a designer and creative thinker based in East London with over 15 years' experience working in the design industry. Most recently I spent eight years at a MediaCityUK-based agency, five of those as Senior Creative Designer. I love to tell stories and good design always has a story behind it. My first love is print, and the tactility of paper, but I'm also fascinated by branding, the endless potential of digital media and how the two can combine. I'm committed, approachable and work hard and always use these traits to understand the client and the project. I've worked with a lot of wonderful and exciting clients. Some big, some of world renown and some small. They include Manchester United FC, English Federation of Disability Sport, the People’s History Museum, United Utilities, TalkTalk, Museum of Science and Industry, the NHS, Warrington Wolves RLFC, National Museums Liverpool and the National Media Museum. All of them are as passionate and resolute about their stories as I am.Locked Pro Plan feature
Self employed freelance graphic designer.
Freelance graphic designer working through Orchard, a specialist freelance recruitment agency. This was my second period with Orchard. My experience allowed me to work with a number of respected design agencies and companies in Manchester and Liverpool, providing experience and support on multiple projects. These included editorial design, exhibition concepts, html mail designs, website assets, presentations and marketing collateral. I was also fortunate to gain experience working on projects for clients that differed greatly from my previous experiences. These included several large housing associations and a five week period at BML, a highly regarded national law firm.
As senior creative I played a central role in the creative output of the company. My role included devising concepts for a diverse range of clients and projects. The agency specialised in corporate communications and exhibition design. This enabled me to create brand refreshes and identities, interactive projects, apps, websites, TV Idents, advertising campaigns and interactive Powerpoint presentations. I also gained skills and experience in other aspects of the job: presenting to key stakeholders, attending networking events, seminars and developing client feedback sessions. I worked with a highly-talented team of designers and project managers allowing me to provide direction to junior designers and collaborate with developers, 3D designers, animators and illustrators.
As a freelance designer I was able to spend time working with a number of prestigious design agencies in the North West, including True North and IAS Stein.
This was my first experience working within a design agency environment. This allowed me to gain invaluable experience working on a wide variety of projects for demanding and knowledgeable clients. Responsibilities included; liaising with both clients and suppliers, particularly printers, researching subject material, preparing moodboards and style sheets to present to the creative director and creating mockups for packaging and branding projects. During my time with the agency I worked on projects covering branding, packaging, and marketing and advertising. Clients included National Museums Liverpool, The Beatles Story, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Wirral Borough Council.
