I'm a creative director working in London, I specialise in exhibition design and brand strategy for the visual arts. I trained at Kingston University (2000-2004) where I focused on the effects film and photography have on memory processes. I continue to explore ways of making personal memory public, through the use of design and photography. I have over 10 years studio experience at agencies including Johnson Banks, Smith & Milton and Sterling, helping develop visual identities in the charity, property and financial sectors. In 2008 I joined the Whitechapel Gallery becoming their first permanent designer working with Spin and Holmes-Wood to re-brand the Gallery and website. In 2010 I was appointed Design Manager helping to establish the The London Art Book Fair and a design internship scheme. In 2011 I was appointed Senior Designer for Tate at the newly established Tate Design Studio. Since then I have successfully led the visual design of major exhibitions including Damien Hirst, (2012) Lichtenstein (2013) and Matisse (2014). In 2014 I was awarded a bursary to help develop new methods of visual communication in digital media. In 2015 I was appointed design lead for Tate's visual identity refresh. I appointed and worked with design agency North; leading the audit, research, design and implementation from an in-house perspective. In collaboration we developed a new identity for the organisation which coincided with the opening of the new Tate Modern in June 2016. In February 2016 I joined Christie's as Head of Creative, EMERI where I oversee the visual guidelines of the organisation.Locked Pro Plan feature
