About me

 

have over eight years of industry based experience across the graphic design field. My professional Career began in 2008 when I began working on set of the Harry Potter films based at Leavesden Studios north of Watford. This was an invaluable experience for me working with Oscar award winning designers and professionals. This exposure to such a high level process of working hugely improved all aspects of my design practice and professional outlook which I still carry with me today. I then carried this experience forward into a successful freelance design career and have built up a great client list including Macy's New York, Nike, English Heritage, The British Library, Adnam's and many more. I have worked across many processes of graphic design including illustration, web/responsive, advertising, art direction, print and design. In 2009 I was selected to represent the U.K at the 2009 biennale in Macedonia. This was an ideal platform for me to network and collaborate with like-minded individuals from across Europe. It was an incredibly enriching experience. I met many talented and interesting people who I am still in contact with, and continue to collaborate with. I pride myself not just on my commercial artwork but also my personal work which I always print by hand. I was selected by the independents arts review as one of the top ten illustrators in the U.K. My personal work has featured in Creative Review Illustration Annual alongside a selection of the best illustration work of 2010. A selection of my work has also been featured in Now Illustration 4. I take an active roll in Manchester's art scene and also when possible the national arts scene where I have just recently exhibited at the Northern design festival alongside several other illustrators.
