Work history

Currently

Art Director

Bauer Media

Oct 2014
  • London, UK
  • Full Time
  • I started at Heat as a freelancer working alongside the Creative Director on the brands re-design for several months. This involved a lot of development work and a chance for me to put my stamp on a leading brand. Using my experience. I helped to freshen up and strip back the magazine and transform it into cleaner and more readable title without compromising the original brand. Shortly after I was appointed Art Editor I was set to roll out the re-design that I myself had helped develop. Three years on and heat has buoyant sales and I have made myself and integral part of the team. I often step up as Director of the team when the Creative Director is working on various projects. On a daily basis I manage a very talented team of designers and ensure the smooth running of the art desk. I contribute and art direct the majority of the celebrity shoots as well as over see fashion, beauty and creative solutions. I have countless covers under my belt so am very used to working under pressure to very tight deadlines without compromising on quality.
