About me
I AM a creative juggernaut who understands and loves PEOPLE. I kick started my career when I started working for the BBC as a designer. From there I have worked on projects from Art Directing the first e-commerce proposition for Harrods to a mobile first solution for UKTV & their portfolio of brands. More recently I have worked with Google and Royal Bank of Canada. I am a "crafter" & a "grafter" who never shies away from getting her hands dirty. Literally!
Projects
  • Folio Society AwardsMy Entry into the Folio Society Awards for Mansfield Park. I used collage, watercolours and drawing for my submission.
  • River IslandArt Directed the initial concepts for the design overhaul for River Island's brand online. Emulating the feel of the stores was paramount and finding innovative ways to display product details pages as well as basket and checkout. It was important not only to entice and excite the River Island customer but also make the process as easy and seamless as possible.
  • The White CompanyI was working as a Senior Designer for The White Company's website re-design and my designs were picked as the chosen route for the re-design.
  • AOI (Association Of Illustrators) and TFL Chosen EntryMy work was selected and chosen to be exhibited at the TFL Museum in Covent Garden, London.
  • V&A AwardsI submitted this self-directed project for the Book Cover Design Awards at the V&A.
  • Award Winning MA Final ExhibitionAwarded a Distinction for my MA - I also went on to win two awards from SILA (Society of Illustrators Las Angeles).

  • Jessica PriceChris was not new in town, but everything felt alien to her now. Brushing the small ash of her cigarette into its frail pot, she gazed at her hands and wondered if they had grown since she last sat in this spot. Here she would come, for the quiet, for the smell, for Lucia. This was home, or at home was how she felt when she came here with Lucia. The memory cooled the flame in her chest, an anger simmering at a world still unchanged. The city awaited. "One black coffee" she said, stepping outside
