I have been working in the industry for a few more years than I care to admit and the majority of them have been freelancing. But this has provided wonderful opportunities to work at different agencies, acquiring significant experience designing for many brands and project, some of which have been clients you currently have! I have worked on branding, corporate identities, exhibitions, packaging, large format printing, and much more besides. In my last role I managed and motivated a team of designers, supervised projects from brief to completion, worked with budgets and finances, as well as helped build and shape a fast paced creative department.
