About me

Graphic designer, creative director and founder of Marmalade. My natural enthusiasm for all things creative and a keen eye for good design keep me motivated and excited about what I do. I am a designer because it’s what I love—the creativity, the problem solving and delivering work with personality. I develop thoughtful, creative solutions for a diverse range of sectors and businesses particularly for SMEs and startups. I have had the privilege of working with clients such as: The Anthony Nolan Trust, CAA, Clyde & Co., England Hockey Board, HP, Historic Royal Palaces, NATS, Saffery Champness, Vodafone and OgilvyDO. Clients and colleagues say I am professional and personable. If you like the idea of working with someone like me and you have a project in mind, I would love to hear from you—I’m a good listener too. Outside of work I enjoy family time with my husband and young daughter. I love to cook, enjoy the outdoors particularly skiing and walking and I am a regular Pilates and gym goer. I also love Japanese culture—a lasting effect of having spent three months in Sapporo as a design student.
