About me
Crafting digital audio and visual experiences for who and what isn’t enough for me. Even in the most subtle ways, as minimal and as resourceful as possible. Every client I work with is a unique creature, and deserves the opportunity to breathe and shine under their own identity. I specialise in conceiving work that’s curious, explorative, and fun to make as a creator and experience as the audience. Learning new technologies and striving to leave every individual creation with personality and intrigue.

  • Taylor Martin Recruitment TV Ad
    Taylor Martin Recruitment TV AdAn animation team named SiLee Films were the first to work with Taylor Martin Recruitment. It was then up to me to take a shot at a second piece using their design work. This time, it centers around a polar bear who's overrun with demand and turns to TMR for urgent temp positions.

  • Gloworm Festival TV Ad
    Gloworm Festival TV AdIt started off when designer Helena Tyce worked on a promotion campaign for an upcoming outdoor festival event suited for young children, and it was up to me to utilise her creations in putting together a television advert to be broadcast on Notts TV. It's a relief to see the festival still runs to this day despite these troubling times. http://glowormfestival.co.uk/

  • Confetti ICT Degree Show Awards 2014
    Confetti ICT Degree Show Awards 2014This was my first attempt at using Cinema 4D back when I was already beginning to transition into motion graphics, and this wasn't even using the full edition! Every year Confetti ICT college hosts an annual prizegiving for degree students, and with the help of graphic design maestro Alex Nelson, I was put to work on a presentation template to the show revealing the nominees and winners for each award category.
