About me

Hey! I’m an integrated designer with a focus on packaging, currently working at Marks SGS. I’m versatile, curious, and love learning – always happy to throw myself into any creative challenge. I’m not afraid to work hard – a total believer in design as a lifestyle, and a self-confessed geek. With almost three years of experience with great FMCG brands, I pride myself on being able to bring big ideas and brand stories to life across platforms – from crafting campaign strategies and packaging, to designing social media content and brainstorming experiential concepts. Please do get in touch if you'd like to know more! PDF Portfolio available on request.
