About me

Hello I am Kaz I am an Art Director and Designer with a unique creative vision that draws on my great and broad understanding of fashion and lifestyle brands. I have worked on brands including Gucci Group, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Macqueen x Puma, Sergio Rossi, Sergio Rossi x Puma, Stella McCartney, Liberty, House of Holland, Pringle of Scotland, Lancel, Burberry, Galeries Lafayette and many other luxury lifestyle brands and retails in both agency and in-house environments. Luxury fashion and lifestyle retail has always been my passion and inspiration and have established my career with global brands developing innovative creative visuals and branding with my work. The expertise to understand core brand ethics and to conceptualise has allowed me to create work defining a brand’s identity, through web based graphic design such as e-commerce, web layout design, photography directions and print based design such as lookbook, show invites, packaging and all sort of marketing tools.
