About me
I'm currently working as a Junior Designer/Artworker for Childrens book start up Wonderbly. I'm loving start-up life but am looking to push myself further and would be interested in exploring Agencies.
Projects
  • A clockwork Orange
    A clockwork OrangeThis project was in response to the Penguin book cover competition. The brief was to create a book cover for the book 'A clockwork orange'.
  • A Collection of emotional fossils
    A Collection of emotional fossilsI based my Final Major Project on ‘The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows’. This is a compendium of invented words written by John Koenig. Each original definition aims to fill a whole in the English language to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don’t have a word for yet. I read a quote by Koenig in which he referred to the words as ‘Emotional Fossils’, I chose to use this as the basis of my project as I think it reflects the beauty and delicacy of the words and their descriptions.

Silly little gifs, educational videos and recipes were seen by hundreds of thousands of parents and children. We tried to make music and foley that was witty but saccharin enough to appeal to children of all ages; and their parents. We had a big team producing videos, including Stephanie Johnston (direction/animation), Anna Brooks (direction), Joe Melhuish (animation), Olly Wright (production), Andy Whitlock (creative
