About me

 

I am a graphic and digital designer, with experience working both in-house and freelance for a range of clients. I work from concept to delivery creating advertising (print, digital and animated), infographics, social media assets, brochures and cross-channel campaign material - which includes responsive emails, landing pages and websites. My development experience includes building web applications in PHP, and creating sites in WordPress and Joomla. My interests lie in developing concepts, grids, typography, sketchbooks, digital behaviour and exploring the possibilities of visual communication. I invest my passion for design by undertaking various charity projects in my spare time to gain knowledge of different briefs and clients, and improving skills of working from project concept to completion. I graduated with an MA in cultural theory 2010, which I have found helps to inspire creative and lateral thinking, and my approach to design projects.
