About me

Hey, I’m Josephine! Well, I’m actually not... my real name is Joana but everyone calls me Jo and some friends call me Josephine! Confusing, right? I’m a London based creative designer with extensive experience in digital and print design across multiple platforms. I am very passionate about what I do, I am meticulous and pay special attention to detail. I have vast experience in brand and team management, taking briefings from start to finish and working with teams of developers, designers and marketeers. I’ve led the design of application user interfaces for a wide range of devices, with a comprehensive understanding of usability topics and worked extensively in print and layout design, developing core graphic and typographic skills. I am a fast learner and highly adaptable to new environments as demonstrated by my ability to work across various design disciplines and with a variety of clients.
