About me

I love creating purposeful design, I’m obsessed with new technology and I adore the work of Wes Anderson a bit too much. I aim to be organised and minimalist in my design outcomes and hope this is portrayed in my portfolio. When I’m not designing, I enjoy skiing, when my bank account allows for it, surfing Reddit and experimenting with photography at every chance I get. I am very interested in exploring and gaining any insight I can into the creative industry andI hope to broaden my knowledge of Graphic Design, ensuring I become an asset wherever I work.
