About me
For the past 2 years, I have built and progressed the creative department for the UK office, as part of a global publishing and advertising business. 
 Working across 3 entities of the business; Evolve Media, LCC, Martini Media & The Studio; I have taken charge of the creative direction of new briefs all the way through to building final digital ad campaigns for clients across entertainment, lifestyle, retail, fashion and the affluent market, to designing the brand identity for the new entity of the business.
 During my time with Evolve I have gained invaluable experience in management, critical insight and knowledge of the industry, and I am now I am looking to join an enthusiastic creative company; where I can really focus on, and hone my skills as a designer; with like-minded people striving for the same goal.
