About me
I'm a London-based graphic and motion designer, and finalist at 2016's D&AD New Blood Shift. My work has been featured in various publications such as Creative Review, Creative Digest and also worked with clients ranging from established brands to public institutions all over the world such as Vice UK, Victoria and Albert Museum, BBC Creative and many more. My work sits between the traditional and digital realms and amalgamates design with everyday culture to solve problems. I am currently working on a freelance basis and always looking for new collaborations and projects. Website:
