About me

I'm an Independent Art Director/ Designer who is always looking for exciting new opportunities. My working portfolio includes 7 and a half years leading the in-house creative team as senior designer at TOPMAN - a leading UK menswear brand. Where I worked on a wide range of projects including packaging, branding, look books, editorial, marketing campaigns and events. Alongside designing at TOPMAN I mentored 2nd year graphic design students from Manchester Metropolitan University, devising projects and delivering workshops as part of the national curriculum. I also worked closely with the D&AD Graduate Academy guiding interns through their primary experience of the industry. Since becoming a LTD Company in 2015, I have worked with various design agencies such as LOVE Creative, Neighbour and Aloof. A range of fashion brands including Burberry, Whistles, Warehouse and Oasis - whilst also building up my own client list which includes ABYSS Brewing, Somerville and N.Brown Group. In the summer of 2017 I launched GILLSAWS, a project dedicated to producing contemporary handcrafted jigsaw puzzles from a small studio in Brighton. GILLSAWS will work with new and established artists to create limited edition puzzles.
