About me
I’m an adaptive highly creative designer that can switch from digital (website, apps (creating user journeys, user maps, flows & wireframes) & email design to print (stationery, brochures & Banners, exhibition) through to branding (logo, guidelines & social media) to illustration & Iconography making sure that everything is on brand and looks and feels cohesive.
