About me

I believe in creating designs that matter, a design or concept that will bring a purpose. As a designer I'm passionate, committed, confident, motivated, inventive, respectful & care about what I communicate visually. Having first hand experience in the creative industry is constantly expanding my love for design across many different media's. Opening up my mind to constant possibilities and opportunities that will develop me as a young designer. Social media & digital marketing is forever becoming a main skill for me, expanding and communicating to a wider audience of networkers and clients through different marketing techniques. It's amazing to see a concept grow, engage and build relationships with audiences all across the globe. I'm human as well, and love doing what a typical 19 year old does. I love playing guitar, exploring, capturing the world through a lens, road trips, travelling, sports, dining, crime series, fashion, the list goes on. Oh and as you can probably tell I'm not one to sit in at the weekends..

Sieve Creative

Mar 2016 - Apr 2016

  • I was fortunate enough to work at Sieve Creative on a work placement over my college holidays. Sieve Creative gave me my first taste of the design industry, working on logo design, branding and magazine design. Working on the "Enterprise Magazine" for businesses in the Cambridgeshire area started to develop my knowledge in layouts, logo design, type and imagery. It gave me a great insight into different editorial skills that were unfamiliar to me before. The experience flared my passion to really push me into the creative industry when I left college, giving me an immense self-driven focus to succeed.
