About me
Since completing University I have built up experience from working at a wide variety of agencies from ATL, Packaging and Shopper Marketing. I am a self motivated person who works well on my own or within in a team. With the client contact I have built over time I am more than comfortable to take briefs, pitch an idea and present. As my experience grows, I would love the opportunity to manage a team and mentor junior designers. As I’ve gained experience through multiple agencies I know I can pass on knowledge not only on mac skills but, time management, building an idea across multiple disciplines and how to execute them properly. From the agencies I’ve worked for and the people I have worked with, I know I have a vast skill set I can pass on, as well as learning more from those around me.

    Senior DesignerMindbomb
     - Milton Keynes, United KingdomFull Time
    Mindbomb are a small design agency based in Milton Keynes. Brought in as a Senior Designer to support the Creative Director. Due to the team being small, I have the opportunity to get involved at all stages, from initial concepts, presentation documents and artwork. The main client I work on is Electrolux for the kitchen appliance remit, creating POS for global markets. The Electrolux guidelines are extremely strict, so as a team we have to make sure all output from a wobbler to a brochure, work in harmony for instore shopper journeys. Due to doing a lot of campaigns and Toolkits, the work we produce needs to have a ‘bronze, silver and gold’ process, so global markets can decide which they want to print locally for their markets. This ranges from a wobbler all the way to a gondola end, and Shopper Journey’s from your sofa to the till. Electrolux also have a strong association with sustainability so this always has to be kept in mind when creating artwork. My shopper experience has proved vital with the agency being so small, meaning a lot of the time I work in isolation getting through the bulk of projects across the business. Clients: Electrolux, AEG, Yamaha Music, Bernhard.

    DesignerHRG ALTAVIA
     - Northampton, United KingdomFull Time
    HRG Ltd are a shopper marketing agency based in Northampton. I was employed as a designer in a busy creative department. My role was working on a wide variety of clients across multiple specialisms from concept to print. I joined a ‘micro studio’ within the design department solely working on Shell. This consisted of working across multiple platforms including POS, Magazine layouts, Packaging and B2B presentations to name just few. I built up a good reputation with the client, being asked to sit in on meetings, ask my opinion on how to explore new avenues with the Drive magazine and basically take control of its tone of voice and production. Clients: Marstons Brewery, Shell Oil, Sky, Volvic Waters, Premier Foods, William Grant, Campari, Starbucks, Brand of Brothers and Westons Cider.
