About me
I am a designer based in the south-east of England. I work in all areas of print (and some digital) specifically in book design and branding. I've worked with a host of publishers, including National Geographic, Harper Collins, Pearson, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Osprey, and more. I've also worked with a wide array of clients such as editor Victoria Mixon and nationally-renowned theatre company Nunkie. When I'm not designing, I am a writer and speaker. I also really don't like moths but I can tie my shoelaces really well.
