Work history

Currently

Senior Graphic Designer

L’oréal Australia

Mar 2011
  • Working closely with marketing, education and purchasing our mission was to set up and operate an internal design team to facilitate the design, print and asset management needs of 20 brands across 4 divisions of the L’Oreal family. Beginning from the ground up we were sought to assess the needs of each brand and develop a relationship that bred a co-operative design approach. Being a part of L’Oreal Australia’s first In-House design team has been an ever-changing and evolving role that has challenged not only my approach to design but my understanding of big business. Such a position in my career is an invaluable asset that has not only taught me new approaches to design using existing skills but also encouraged actionable foresight as to the sustainability and feasibility of the team in a fluid environment.
