About me

I’m an independent designer who specialises in brand identity and art direction. Based in Yorkshire, I work with clients of all sizes around the world to help grow their business with lasting design which is unique and relevant. I have strong brand experience working in New Zealand, Australia and the UK, and with experience in a retail in-house environment. Having worked for a wide range of brands, including Asda, Nike and Mamas & Papas, I also love to work with smaller companies and start-ups on building their brand.

Senior Graphic Designer

Mamas & Papas

Jan 2014 - Apr 2016

  • The role gave me the opportunity to work in a large in-house environment during a period of huge change, with the brand repositioning itself in the marketplace. I worked on a vast array of different projects, from literature and brochures, ad and social campaigns, packaging for clothing and interiors ranges and working with photographers and stylists in concepting and art directing a variety of different photo shoots. The biggest of which was the 2016 relaunch of the pushchair range, using social media as a driving force, with real families who we sourced ourselves.

I worked with the team on large projects such as the 2012 Gen-i Sales Conference wayfinding, ‘set design’ for the interior areas, exterior wayfinding, registration packs and ‘take-home’ elements, food packaging and the overall branding of the event. We regularly worked on campaigns, in-store and windows for Nike and pop-up events they ran including a run with Ellie Goulding. I also saw my own projects through from concept to finished art alongside my creative director and our senior designer which included the re-branding of Columbus Coffee. Working with a strategist and architect, we gave the brand an overhaul and worked in detail on signage design, printed elements including menus, wall graphics, packaging design (coffee cups, food wraps) and the interior look of branches going forwards.

The team grew quickly and we worked together on larger projects such as the in-store environments for Nike Global. I handled smaller clients projects- the Snaith identity and Richard Moran portfolio book- independently with support from my Creative Director.
