About me

As a freelance creative, most of my best work falls under agency NDA's so I am unable to show you it here - please contact me to arrange a meeting and I can talk you through the really exciting stuff! I believe any design solution should be as clever as it is beautiful, be it a logo, an entire brand identity or just a look and feel for an existing brand or brochure. I thrive on the challenge of creating art direction and design that people love to look at. I am a well rounded creative with fresh and exciting art direction and an ability to create campaign platforms and creative routes that lend themselves to great 360º communication campaigns. I am passionate about interpreting an insight or brief to deliver high level creative concepts with tangible tactical ideas to connect with audiences. I always look at briefs with a curious eye and enjoy working collaboratively with Creative Directors, strategists and other creatives to get the very best results. I love to develop new brands, helping to convey their ethos and personality with insightful branding and visual identities and also working with existing brands to create inspiring PR, marketing and advertising campaigns and social tactics. I love bringing ideas to life and the challenge of creating campaigns and concepts that are clever, engaging and visually beautiful.
