About me

 

As a creative designer in an integrated agency I am used to working in a fast-paced team environment. Day-to-day, I am designing and art-directing on projects both above and below the line across multiple platforms. Be it storyboarding for animations, building a new brand or collaborating on a new campaign, I am in my element when I can embrace a creative territory whole-heartedly. Since cutting my teeth in London as an information designer I have been fortunate enough to work for a varied list of clients from financial blue chip and global luxury brands to small independent businesses.
