About me
Hi, I'm a multidisciplinary graphic designer hailing from Bristol, UK. Having learned English on the fly as a teen, I know that language is only one facet of human interaction, and my practice aims to marry utility and aesthetics with integrity, sensitivity, and attention to detail. I'm interested in proactive, future-conscious work across physical and digital media. Drop me a line - I'm available for work and collaboration!

  • Alisya Couture - branding an artisanAlisya Couture is a small, independent dressmaking business based in the South West of England, providing bespoke dressmaking and alterations services to clients locally and abroad. The visual identity was built around the ideas of simplicity and elegance, with a nod to some of Alisya's own aesthetic inspirations. It was important to convey Alisya's open, friendly personality as well as her aesthetic sense and meticulous approach to her craft.
