A multi-disciplinary designer based in London with a focus on branding and print design, image making and art direction.

    Folk ClothingArt Direction / Print The Spring Summer 16 collection was all about pop colours and the movement of fabrics, peppered with familiarity but not always in expected places. Working with the stylist Victoria Higgs, the focus of the campaign was to capture this sense of youth and movement, as well as playing on the element of surprise.
