About me

I am a digital designer with a background in User Experience Design. I have a wealth of experience in the commercial sector working with global brands, tech startups and entrepreneurs I am proud to have worked with truly creative minds at award winning agencies for a roster of global clients. Clients such as BBC, CNN, VisitBritain, Invista, Daily Mail, Euronews, but also working with startup companies and entrepreneurs. This valuable experience has shaped me as a designer, but most importantly, it has taught me to be adaptable, to constantly try to future proof products and that big ideas travel. Without an idea behind it, design becomes meaningless and transient. The big idea acts as the catalyst, which informs the process and eventually the solution. I will put everything into your idea taking on a strategic approach to identify opportunities where your brand might excel. I always try to inject personality into the brands I work with in order to help connect with it’s audience. I research competitors, user behaviour, the market and most importantly your vision which lead to the big idea.
