About me
I am a graphic designer who specialises in creating work that has a unique and impactful identity. I have a lot of experience working in the field of architecture and work hard to find the best ways to communicate a designers vision to their clients. I attempt to incorporate techniques such as typography, illustration or paper engineering in projects when I can, and always strive to create work that is poignant and versatile. I graduated in 2017 with a BA Hons in Graphic and Media Design from the London College of Communication. I have worked at two major architectural practices in London as both a consultant and an in-house graphic designer where I aid in the preparation of bids, models, internal documents, presentation, illustrations and much more. I have also interned at a brilliant graphic design agency and at a leading exhibition design practice, both of which gave me the opportunity to work on live, on-going projects across the globe. I thoroughly enjoy working with creatives along with other colleagues and always aim to learn as much as I can to improve my own knowledge and skills.

  • Colourful Financial Breakdown Document John McAslan + Partners
    Colourful Financial Breakdown Document John McAslan + PartnersDuring my time at John McAslan + Partners I was asked to work on a presentation reviewing the companies financial year. These documents are very data heavy and its easy to simply put up page after page of spreadsheets. The director who requested my assistance asked if I could look into creating a more interesting and visually appealing outcome. I started by analysing the data itself, and finding the best way to represent it. The data had to be represented in two ways, an overall summary of each
  • Rebranding - The William Road Gallery
    Rebranding - The William Road GalleryFor this project I was hired by the William Road Art Gallery in 2018 for a rebranding effort to make their style more professional and dynamic. The client saw the ethos as creating a space illuminated by the art held within it, a simple message that is true to all galleries and museums and a message I brought to every aspect of the rebrand. This can be seen primarily in the application of the logo, where it is always printed or placed on white, in white and layered underneath it are a series of
  • Company Rebrand - Leslie Jones Architecture
    Company Rebrand - Leslie Jones ArchitectureWhen working at Leslie Jones Architecture I was asked to initiate a company wide rebrand of their documentation as they wanted a newer and more graphic visual style. The new branding exhibits an updated aesthetic and a more graphic use of space, and is as accessible as possible so the architects using them can maintain the quality of the final product without having to sacrifice time to do so. I gave a number of lessons to the staff on how to use the documents effectively to increase their knowl
  • Osterley House - The National Trust
    Osterley House - The National TrustThis was a competition I entered to design an exhibit to go in the basement gallery in Osterley House, requiring that participants come up with a design that explored the building’s architect Robert Adams and his impact on the structures transformation. I responded by designing a concept that involved filming a series of illustrators drawing and painting various rooms in the house on a large scale and then project this process sped up on the walls of the gallery. The viewers could then enjoy wat
  • Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty - V&A
    Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty - V&AThis was a short project that I undertook for the V&A to design a poster for their Alexander McQueen exhibition, Savage Beauty. We were tasked with designing a potential creative poster for the exhibition retroactively which showed some insight into McQueens style. Through a combination of materials and laser cutting techniques I designed a poster based off one of his pieces featured in the exhibition, concluding with two examples; one with a perspex background to show how this piece could be re
  • The Future of Retail - Leslie Jones Architecture
    The Future of Retail - Leslie Jones ArchitectureWhilst being employed at Leslie Jones Architecture I was asked to develop an alternative and eye-catching document that the managing partners would use whilst they gave a series of lectures and meetings on the topic of the future of retail and exploring ideas to reinvigorate it. The final outcome was a concertina presentation board with hand drawn illustrations combine with relevant imagery, designed to depict the concept that the managing partners were pitching. The document went down well with
