About me

I love using my creativity to help clients tell a story. I get to work with lots of really interesting people and brands and the huge variation from one job to the next keeps me stimulated. I find the discovery phase of a new project really exciting. I like to incorporate plenty of light and shadows in my work and I love the challenge of working out where a cast-shadow should sit. A sense of scale or perspective gets me quite excited too. I love soft colours and experimenting with gradients and blend modes to create interesting colour harmonies.
