About me
Hello. I am a fast, creative and conscientious designer with a strong visual style, tasteful understanding of colour, type and composition. Graduating in 2004, with a degree in Print and Publishing Production (HND) from the University of the Arts, and since gained 15 years commercial experience. I have a solid background using the Adobe CS, Sketch, InVision, InVision Studio, Figma, HTML5 and CSS3, with a fondness to illustrate by hand. I thrive collaborating on a team, independently or remotely from my studio. An ability to multitask efficiently and prioritize on projects effectively — from conception through to completion and within deadline. Experience in UX/UI design and build, print design, typography, animation, branding and brand management. Comfortable working in-house and client facing.
