About me
I’m not the kind of designer who stops exploring design when I leave the office. I love surrounding myself with quality design and I bring this everyday influence into my work. Outside of design I’m an avid cyclist, tattoo collector and love practising yoga. I try and get myself to the theatre as much as I can and I am trying to increase how much I read, both fact and fiction, so far this year I have managed rather well!

    The Founded - Email MarketingWhilst working with The Founded I worked to simplify and modernise the email marketing campaigns. With changing demographics as well as a large range of age groups within the demographics I reduced the design on emails to a clean fresh format whilst keeping the attitude and energy of the brand.
