About me

 

I’m a graphic design graduate from Nottingham Trent University, and I work part time as a freelance photographer. My work explores how design can be used to solve real problems or create change, mostly through branding and campaigns. My ideas are driven by research, and my designs always have a reason behind them. I enjoy the creative process, and I have many skills which I’m keen to develop.

Awards

2015

Roses Student Awards Winner

  • I won the brief 'Dementia Tech', attended the ceremony at The Mecure Hotel, Manchester and was awarded a placement at Tayburn, Edinburgh.
