I have over 10 years experience of print, digital and brand design. An established magazine design background for titles including Vanity Fair and Sunday Times magazine has given me an intuitive understanding of telling a visual story through design, as well as strong typographical skills, the ability to select the most pertinent image and the belief that it is the detail that makes for great design. This has developed into an intuitive understanding of user experience when working on digital and interactive projects, with the added details of strong infographics and clear icons to help visualise the user journey or complex information. My unrelenting attention to detail and craft in my work has led to innovative and exciting brand design from logos to brand collateral. As a project manager, my great relationships with clients and the people I work with and good time management means I produce quality design that exceeds expectations. My skills include the following: + DIGITAL DESIGN including websites and web apps, from wireframes to userability and user interaction, to pixel perfect button design. + Wireframes + UX & UI + Pixel perfect design + PRINT DESIGN extensive experience working on leading news-stand magazines and newspaper magazines, corporate books and annual report style publications. + Client, team & project management + Art director: illustration, animation & photography + Illustration - editorial & animation + Branding and logo design + Infographic design + Advertising design + Artworking & print management I have been using the following software on a regular basis, if not daily so am fully competent in: + Adobe creative suite Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop + Adobe DPS + Sketch + InvisionLocked Pro Plan feature
