About me

As a designer, I aim to create delight in everyday objects and experiences. I specialise in user interface design, visual communication and user experience. I have worked within teams as a User Interface designer as well as holding the role of Graphic and Visual designer. My most recent role was as Creative Lead at Mindwave Ventures, a social purpose company focused on health-tech. In that role, I oversaw the design team on project work and managed the delivery of projects within the company whilst creating the front-end designs for all of our products and services. Having studied Industrial Design & Technology at Brunel University and Graphic design at the Politecnico di Milano, I am experienced in a range of processes to engage people through presentation and information, iconography and visualisation techniques. People are always at the heart of my designs so I am constantly iterating based on user feedback and accessibility guidelines. I left Mindwave to go freelance; expanding my portfolio beyond Health. I am currently working on a range of projects, predominantly branding and web design. I am always keen to meet new people and share a common interest in beautiful design.
