Talented, passionate and driven graphic designer, with seven years experience, across multiple design sectors, including advertising, marketing and high end apparel. My work has taken me abroad to work in-house for high end brands in America and the Netherlands, as well as working at number of exciting and diverse design agencies, in the West Midlands. I have excellent time management, presentation and interpersonal skills. I am self motivated and always challenge myself to grow and develop as a designer.
I work across the food & beverage, leisure and retail sectors, for a broad spectrum of clients. I act both as brand guardian for our established clients and as a design protagonist for newer, emerging brands. Large projects can span several months and often involve working with other disciplines within the company, such as the interior designers, to create internal graphics, murals and renders of conceptual spaces. I brief illustrators and graffiti artists, to create bespoke design elements to support my work, however I also create bespoke illustrations, drawing upon my wider skill set, either drawing by hand or creating digtially. I also art direct on photoshoots ensuring every shot is not only suitable for commercial use but is also beautiful in its own right.
