About me
I'm a London-based Creative Director / Art Director with 15 years experience across different disciplines, from luxury fashion advertising to retail environments. I'm versatile, confident and very effective in leading both creative projects and teams throughout the entire process, from concept to realisation. In my last role, I directed a design team of 2D, 3D and eCom designers, while also working on retail interior and art direction concepts myself. I've worked at large agencies like Grey, fashion-focused agencies like Spring and Wednesday, boutique retail agencies like Harlequin and Neighbour and produced campaigns for clients such as Tom Ford, Calvin Klein and Puma.
  • Hyperbolic BrewingBranding and ongoing creative direction for Hyperbolic Brewing, a London-based independent craft brewery. Established in 2017, Hyperbolic is an award-winning brewing project for its full-flavoured fruit sours, Imperial Stouts and experimental ‘Paraboloid’ series. The brand’s identity is influenced by the duality of the word ‘hyperbolic’; the branding being inspired by the curved properties of a hyperbola and the labels expressing hyperbole and exaggeration.
