Warm Street

Aug 2017 - Sep 2017

  • Warm Street is a PR agency that commissioned me to create a Zine for the launch of a new app Hubrick. The agency supplied imagery and copy and gave me free reign to create something that I felt worked within the guidelines of the app. This was a thoroughly liberating experience as it allowed me to flex my creative ability.

Rhubarb Fool Media Ltd

Jun 2017 - Jul 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I was brought in by the company CEO to act as an additional designer working on an edition of 'Premier Tax Free' magazine. During the month that I worked with the team I helped to create spreads for luxury brands, advertisements and I also created templates for design the in-house designers could use to create their own spreads in a uniform style.

2017

Deputy Artworker

SHOP magazine

Nov 2012 - May 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • As the deputy artworker at Shop, my daily responsibilities range from managing the design teams schedule, to liaising with the international marketing managers. My main priorities include designing, art-working and proofing approximately 26 magazines solo, per year. I then proof a further 60 editions throughout the year. I work with the picture team to art-direct bespoke magazine covers; which also entails sourcing illustrators, writing the directive’s and commissioning the talent. Most recently I have been helping to create a new app by designing, testing and publishing both English and foreign language adaptations of the magazines on a digital platform, which is hosted on wordpress. As a print designer this has been an immensely educational task as it requires you to design in a completely different way. From a more managerial aspect, I mentor the design team and set quarterly targets to help maintain and improve the high-standard of work, and help individuals to create their own career strategies.
