About me
I am a passionate integrated designer, currently working at Grey London. I've worked on a variety of blue chip brands and delivered a range of media such as TV, print, social, digital, OOH and experiential.
Projects
  • Pantene - Strong is Beautiful
    Pantene - Strong is BeautifulPantene’s Strong is Beautiful campaign, reflects the beauty in having strong hair amongst women. We have used singer Ellie Goulding as our UK celebrity ambassador. I assisted with the delivery of print and TV, as well as taking a lead role on all social and digital design across the UK & Europe.
  • Scrummmptious Cakes
    Scrummmptious CakesScrummmptious Cakes, are a healthy cake snack made with half the sugar of normal cakes. With a tiny budget, a small team and very tight deadlines, we turned around one of the quickest campaigns to date. My creative partner and I created radio, social and trolley media, to drive awareness of the new cake brand. I took lead on art direction and design. The aim was to convey the fun and rebellious nature of the cakes through a graphic treatment and cheeky copywriting, because they are ‘not so sweet’.
  • Nice ‘n Easy - Colour as real as you are
    Nice ‘n Easy - Colour as real as you are‘Colour as real as you are’, a past campaign from Nice ‘n Easy, which celebrates 50 years of hair colour. I designed the new anniversary logo as well as print, OOH and social. The logo was used across all platforms including TV and an online video.
