Hello A little bit about me: I’m a creative designer and art director with a wealth of experience in the arts and charity sector. My formal education was as a graphic designer, but I also illustrate, direct and produce moving image. I’m an ideas generator, have a very keen eye for detail and relish new challenges, however big or small. I’m always calm under pressure, am able to communicate clearly to peers and colleagues, and pride myself on my ability to develop strong, intuitive and trusting relationships. I’m friendly and approachable, equally content working as part of a team as I am leading one. I’m always happy to roll up my sleeves and get stuck in – no challenge is too big or small – no cup of tea one too many. I‘m a highly-motivated, hard-working, hands on creative, but I’m also a great listener – no matter where I am or what I’ve achieved I always think there’s more to learn – we are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master – or so Hemingway said. I have over twelve years experience working in the arts and I’m now freelancing for a number of clients including the English National Ballet, Headlong Theatre, Hunter Design and Spy Studio. I’m also an associate of Factory 311. As my CV shows, whilst I have previously worked at Creative Director level, I remain an experienced and hands on graphic designer, able to artwork, proof, print buy and send artwork to print.

Freelance creative director offering design and art direction services to clients
As Creative Director of the National Theatre of Great Britain I was responsible for the creation, development and delivery of the NT’s brand and sub-brands, marketing campaigns, retail environments (on and off site), and event spaces. A hands on creative, personally taking ideas from first sketches through to producing and directing photoshoots, short films or unique illustrations. I successfully delivered high quality creative solutions in a fast paced, high-pressure environment, working closely with the in-house team of multidisciplinary designers and editors to produce 360º campaigns, ensuring impact across print, digital and film.
I entered the studio as a Junior, designing print for marketing, fundraising and education. I proved myself quickly in the role and moved up internally. As demands grew I took on the role of Studio Manager/Senior designer. It was in this position I started to work independently on creative briefs and also looked after the welfare and management of the team. From this role I was promoted again to Deputy Art Director, enjoying a larger creative responsibility, and finally to Creative Director.
Sole designer responsible for branding and marketing of the college and its sub brands.
Working within a small in-house team I produced a wide range of awareness print material.
