About me
I am a freelance graphic designer and copywriter based in Bristol. I save you the hassle of hiring a separate designer and copywriter. I am also skilled in illustration and have experience professionally retouching images. As well as designing and copywriting, my previous roles gave me experience in marketing consumer events and ecommerce within retail for a premium business bag company. I am open to working in any industry and I will bring fresh ideas and my versatile creative skills to projects.

     - Plymouth, United Kingdom
    I created hand drawn illustrations and mostly used them within graphic designs for both digital and print designs. I visualised my ideas through sketches and researched contemporary illustrators and graphic design theory. I worked on briefs for a variety of themes and media. I participated in regular life drawing classes and explored print making processes, animation and interactive game design as well as editorial layouts and book design. One of the highlights of my studies was winning runner up 'best stand' as a course at the D&AD New Blood exhibition.
