Work history




Sep 2013
  • After three years in the industry, i've designed for a variety of clients - from some of the UK's leading law firms to small start-ups in the arts and sports sectors. In my present multi-disciplinary role, i've developed my understanding across branding, print and digital. As an all-rounder, I have experience working from the initial design stages of projects through to the final implementation phases. I've had a hands-on role within my current agency, working collaboratively as part of a small, integrated team. In addition to developing my skills across Creative Suite, I've led client presentations, gone on-site to art direct photoshoots, managed interns and project managed clients.
