About me

Most recently I have been working as a Senior Designer and Print Designer for various textile print studios. I was responsible for developing ideas from initial brainstorms to finished artworks for kidwear, womenswear, menswear, accessories, lingerie and beachwear. Art directing and developing pitch ideas for new brand collaborations. My strength points are: massive background in print design, trend forecasting, creative product development, style guide, redrawing vintage print and able to repeat pattern with complex colour variants within all the steps of printing process along. I’ve a very good attitude for colours and aesthetic judgment along with an attention to details, capacity of thinking outside of the box and ability to deal with multiple projects. Working as a senior designer on my previous roles, I was responsible of developing ideas, trend and colour forecasting, branding, packaging, print, placemets and illustrations. I’m used to deal with licensees and to support the design process with illustration, graphic placement and all over print for many product ranges, from initial idea generation through to finished artwork. Specialties: * Textile Print * Graphics * Trend reporting & analysis * Fashion design * Licensing and Branding
