About me
A Brighton-based graduate in graphic design, I offer 15+ years’ experience in creative idea generation and art direction, with rigorous concept development and artworking in both print and digital formats. I am adaptable, having successfully worked in house and freelance across a range of industries including spa, travel, government, charities and the arts. Known for my curiosity and laserbeam attention to detail, I take pride in doing the best job I can do. I am efficient and organised, with a perfectionist streak and a terrific sense of humour.
