About me
A freelance print and web designer with 6+ years’ experience working with a range of clients across a broad spectrum of industries. I am highly proficient using the Adobe Creative Suite, notably InDesign, Photoshop, XD, and Illustrator as well as many other tools including Premiere Pro, Lightroom, WordPress, and WooCommerce. A designer with an eye for clean, simple solutions to complex problems, I am always looking for new challenges which allow me the opportunity to research and learn new skills, and regularly undertake courses at General Assembly or through Codecademy to broaden my knowledge.
