About me
As a UK based Graphic Designer and creative problem solver, (expertly blended with strategic thinking), I have spent over 13 years developing charities and mission–based businesses through design and (previously) fundraising and management.

I have partnered with clients across the globe to define and communicate stories, products and services clearly and succinctly. I’m a creative thinker and doer, with the flexibility to generate loads of brilliant ideas in a variety of styles and the focus to follow a set brief as needed.

I was brought on board to set up new brand visuals, design all necessary materials, and ongoing social content. DESIGN After hosting a brand creation workshop with the team, I presented several concepts and we settled on a way forward. Using a mix of blues
  • Illustration
    IllustrationBRIEF During London’s strict COVID lockdowns, I was inspired to create something that people could share with a friend to let others know they are thinking of them. DESIGN I drew a variety of playful scenes by hand and turned them into postcards that could be sent and then used as mini–prints to display. I used four colourful backgrounds to bring each design to life. The ‘Moonclouds’ design was inspired by looking at the night sky, wondering what friends and family across the globe might be u
  • Editorial
    EditorialBRIEF Create a cover page for an alternative travel magazine and an inside spread for Manchester.  DESIGN My design concept was based on the idea of scratching away layers to reveal more than expected in an unusual travel destination.
