About me

I am an enthusiastic and passionate Graphic Designer from New Zealand. Skilled in print design and experienced in digital design, I love to work in a range of different design fields. I have two years experience working in house on a variety of brands and projects including POS design, magazine layout, billboard advertisements, catalogues, greeting card illustration, stationery design, social media, branding, and packaging. I have another years experience of freelance design where I worked on painting projects, mural projects, small branding projects, fashion photography shoots, and spent time with renowned New Zealand advertising agency JustONE working on advertising and rebranding. As I designer I enjoy working in fashion and fine arts, and love to apply my skills to a range of different styles. As a human I like dogs, beaches, hummus, and wine.
