About me
Thanks for visiting my page. In my most recent position, I was a Senior Graphic Designer and Creative Head for a technology company based in Reading. Here, I reported into a senior management and brand team. I was tasked with managing the design team and our creative projects, in a fast-paced environment. My responsibilities included campaign development, creative oversight of projects, managing and helping to evolve brand guidelines, regularly generating new and exciting creative, supporting social, digital and channel teams to execute their own marketing strategies and supporting my fellow designers in their work-flow and task management. Throughout my career, I have worked as an in-house designer and freelancer and have sought to continually improve and extend my skill set. I’ve most recently undertaken courses in Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. In addition to my core skills in print, event design and the development of marketing campaigns, my skills extend to web and UI design, photography, digital painting, and digital marketing. I’m looking to join a team of fellow creatives, where there is ample opportunity to own projects and drive creative direction. I’m eager to consider roles that extend beyond being a designer day-to-day and further develop my skills in management.

    Digital Painting - VariousThis is a personal passion. Painting! Digital or tradition - this is where I'm happiest.

    Monster Attack in a Home OfficeWhile job hunting and updating my portfolio, I wanted to create something a bit fun and have always loved these isometric illustrations. This has helped me process the feeling of suddenly having been taken away from the comfort zone of my desk, as if a monster suddenly swooped in and pulled me away.
