About me

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.

  • 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.

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.
