Graduating with first class honours in Graphic Design I joined Manchester's leading agency in interactive innovation, mN, before the inevitable move to London. Since joining AKQA I've been a member of a small multi-disciplinary team focusing on new business as well as leading projects for Virgin Atlantic, Volvo and Nike. I believe in this fast paced time moments are all we have. The greatest pleasure comes from making moments that connect with the people who need them. — Selected clients Nike, Volvo, Studio Canal, BBC, Virgin Atlantic, Arup, Ryanair, GSK.
Designing with a talented team in a highly respected agency. Providing Art Direction and user understanding. Working closely with developers in agile projects to ensure design and thinking is carried through to the final build. Being an integral part of the team in fast paced pitches. While working for mN, I have created work for Arup, Reuters, Visit Manchester and various high level BBC projects such as BBC Sport and The Proms.
Whilst in my final year of university I became part of the team at Shape as a designer. Being part of a small team meant the roll brought with it many responsibilities including art direction. A great agency to start my career in design.
2 week placement working within a large company and closely with the senior designers.
A two week design placement working at one of the coolest graphic design agencies I've yet encountered. Working in a small team creating content for the web and print provided another great experience for an eager student. The whole experience made the four hour drive each day more than worth it.
The first placement is always daunting as it is equally exciting for a student. For four weeks, the team at Funnel made me feel part of the family and allowed me to work on projects their top clients from day one. As a first taste of what the creative industry had in store, I couldn't have chosen a better place.
