As a designer with a passionate interest in ethics, values and grassroots activism, I believe in the implementation of honest, functional design to foster positive social change whether through education, empowerment or simply giving people something that they need in a manner that is right for them. I have a mature, pragmatic approach to print and digital design that values function over form, balancing principles of usability, legibility and succinct, purposeful communication with a close eye for detail. With a background in internal communications, brand communications and strategy, I have the experience and the knowledge to help brands reaffirm their core values, from volunteering with the smallest charities to working with the biggest companies. I have worked with clients including AXA, IKEA, Unilever, SIG and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, primarily in the field of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility reporting.Locked Pro Plan feature
