About me

Based in Brighton, I specialise in typography, illustration, publications and creating brand identities for a variety of different clients. I will often create a full identity, which includes brand guidelines on colour, typography, type hierarchy and layout. It is my aim to provide clients with clear visual communication presented in a beautiful way. Much of my personal work incorporates the idea of both storytelling and participation. Before working in design I worked for ten years as an arts producer for Artangel. This provided me with the experience of working to tight deadlines, managing complex projects and finding creative solutions. I am currently looking for new clients, so please do get in touch if you wish to discuss a project.
