I have 7 years professional experience working with a variety of organisations from publicly funded institutions such as the British Library and Oxford University, to charities such as Crisis UK and the National Saturday Club Trust. As a freelance designer I have worked on multiple briefs simultaneously, from concept to completion, with different teams and often tight deadlines. I thrive on the diverse nature that this takes, and I find it allows me to deliver clear, simple designs that are effective and meet the brief. I have also worked on projects that have used my illustration and web design skills, delivering work with integrity and of the highest standard. I enjoy using a variety of skills, while still ensuring my own voice is communicated as a designer.Locked Pro Plan feature
