About me

I have a creative background working with some of the world’s largest consumer brands where my skills have helped create and visualise campaigns that have run up and down the country. Art directing during early stages of briefs with idea generation and design, my creative thinking has been utilised as part of the vision for clients. My specialties include creative print, production, brand and identity and advertising. I have a 2:1 BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree at the Arts University Bournemouth and have had creative industry experience with Ogilvy & Mather, venturethree amongst others.

2014

Senior Creative

Naked Brazil, Sao Paulo

May 2014 - Jul 2014
  • Hostel La Na Vila is a project from Naked Comms in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was invited to participate as a Graphic Designer in Brazil during the FIFA World Cup 2014. Here, I worked with international creatives from many different backgrounds to work on creative briefs. We enjoyed learning new techniques and methods to answer creative briefs and how to best utilise the skills and experience of the group. During my time we explored ways of researching, idea generation, prototyping, design execution and presenting. Through out the event, we had lectures from industry experts including executives from the media industry, television personalities, musicians, and the Creative Director of Facebook, Brazil. An incredible opportunity that I was very honoured to have been selected to participate in. Working as a designer in Brazil during the World Cup was a once in a lifetime opportunity. An energetic and inspiring environment was built where we created amazing work and met new like-minded creatives from around the world.
