About me

I’m a freelance graphic designer based in South West London but I can work with you wherever you are based. My background is in marketing, web design/web content management and e-commerce. I studied Design for Visual Communication at University of the Arts (London College of Communication) and I’m about to further my studies with an MA in Graphic Media Design, starting September 2017. I have experience of working with B2B and B2C organisations, start-ups and small businesses, education and charity organisations, producing a range of print and digital design work such as booklets, brochures, posters, flyers, logos, business cards, web/social media graphics and short animations. I’m also keen to collaborate on projects with other creative practitioners. Software skills include: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Dreamweaver, HTML & CSS, Wordpress and Magento CMS.
