About me

Experienced digital designer and art director, values innovation, the arts, charity, and social good. Strong Visual Lead, with significant understanding of UX design. My work has afforded me amazing opportunities to create digital products and services for inspirational brands such as the Girl Effect, Asthma UK, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds - the largest wildlife conservation charity in Europe, the Peabody Housing Association, Maersk, Aviva, Coca-Cola and more. I’ve designed for the healthcare sector, service design & engineering, financial & professional services, branded luxury goods and most recently the music industry. I've led numerous big web builds and digital rebrands, headed a team of UX and visual designers as Associate Head of Design at Zone Digital, and collaborated with some of the UK's best creative agencies to craft transformational digital products and experiences.
