     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    My previous position; working as the sole in-house designer at one of the largest content marketing agencies in Europe, Mediaplanet. Over which I designed around 80 print publications that distributed alongside the Guardian, Telegraph and the New Scientist... just to name a few! I've designed covers for Prince William, Jameela Jamil, David Beckham (and his wife), Rachel Riley and even the Pope! Working with an even longer list of amazing clients that match. Being the only in house designer meant that I was given a tremendous amount of creative freedom within our print campaigns. This allowed me to play a big part in the innovation of production within the UK branch and globally. From making production process improvements, design thinking and creating new products to further the financial projection of the company.
