Work history

Currently

Graphic Designer

Hogarth Worldwide

Feb 2013
  • Whilst freelancing, I one day landed at Hogarth Worldwide in Milton Keynes and ended up staying for the best part of three years. Although work was all on the Santander account, there was a variety of sub-brands within the account that enabled me to do a variety of creative design work. This includes external design such as campaign items everyone will see in branch, infographics for the Santander social media sites, illustrative work seen by the employees only, design for the internal website, interactive PDFs, and storyboarding for animations and motion graphics. I have since transferred to the London office in order to work on new accounts (such as Acer, The AA, Toni&Guy, Herbal Essences, Colgate and HSBC), to further expand my design skills and broaden my horizons.

I was required to do artwork for print, image retouching, layout design, illustration and more.
