About me
I am an experienced graphic designer offering a broad skill-set across digital and print acquired over 10 years working full time and freelance in media, apparel and music for both established companies and small business clients. I approach every project with diligence and enthusiasm, aiming to strip back the superfluous and deliver effective design in line with the client’s ethos, to ensure real engagement with their audience.

    Initially working remotely for existing contacts in Australia, I have since developed a varied client list in the UK across a broad range of industries and projects. My desire to continually expand my technical abilities has been invaluable in my work.

     - Sydney, AustraliaFull Time
    I started out as a menswear Design Assistant at forward-thinking, global surf lifestyle clothing brand Insight, gaining ground up experience of the apparel design industry. After my first year I worked freely between the PR/Marketing and Design departments thanks to my experience in media and events. This mobility within the company gave me a great perspective on departmental cooperation and timeline-management. After three and a half years and with several best-selling global designs under my belt, I made an exit from the surf fashion industry (and Australia entirely) to pursue my interests abroad.
