About me
I have 8-9 years experience in Art, Graphics and Branding, with extensive knowledge through from production and design, to sales and project management. I have a proven track record of completing large branding projects with budgets exceeding £200k, on time and under budget, across Europe and Russia. This incorporates excellent time management, regular team meetings internally and with clients to ensure project transparency. Also carefully managing suppliers to ensure budgets are kept and managing individuals in multiple teams from designers and architects, to building managers, production and installation teams. Always keen to deliver a high quality project.
