Hello there, I'm an award winning art director with fifteen years experience working in editorial and digital. I've worked at Sport magazine as art director for the last seven years. Sport was a weekly magazine with over 300,000 issues distributed around the UK. I'm more than comfortable dealing with brands, agents, big names and the occasional big ego. I've had the pleasure of commissioning some of the most talented photographers and illustrators in the industry on a very limited budget. I also worked in the commercial side of the business delivering innovative creative editorial and digital solutions for major brands including: Adidas, Amazon, Apple, Barclays, British Airways, Budweiser, Casio, Electronic Arts, ESPN, Heinz, Microsoft, Netflix, Nike, Panasonic, Proctor and Gamble, Racing Post, Red Bull, Royal Navy, Samsung, Shinola, Sony, Swatch Group, UK Government and Volkswagen.Locked Pro Plan feature
