I am a graphic designer from Yorkshire living in London. Originally, I studied branding & print design, specialising in typography. In 2016 I was awarded membership to the International Society of Typographic Designers. Now I work across multiple disciplines including digital, web & motion design.Locked Pro Plan feature
I took on a freelance design role in mid-2018 for True. On weekends and evenings I worked alongside the marketing team to create top-class print materials in the style of the True brand. The company had recently had their brand re-designed and I was brought on board to see where we could take the new identity in a visually exciting way. Alongside the print materials throughout the year, in October I designed the interior, presentations and collateral for True’s annual network event at Sea Containers, London. Fever-Tree‘s CEO and co-founder, Tim Warrillow, delivered the keynote.
My first role as Designer in an agency environment. At TAKEOFF I started as a layout designer but have progressed into creating animations, designing websites, curating event spaces and video editing. I have created content and designed pitches for clients such as Nintendo, Amazon, Ubisoft, Warner Bros, Netflix, Cirque du Soleil and more. To add to progressing as a designer, I have a role in the direction of the company's brand and website, as well as having a client-facing and project management role.
My first role as a designer was at Taylor's in a three month internship with their design team. It gave me a fantastic insight into what it was like to work in the industry and work on live projects for clients such as Marks & Spencer.
I studied design in Newcastle and received first class honours in Graphic Design. I also studied Art & Design at foundation level, A-level and GCSE.
I was awarded ISTD membership for the design of my publication 'You Can't Kill an Idea'. International Society of Typographic Designers, ISTD, is a professional body run by and for typographers, graphic designers and educators. The Society has an international membership who share and support its aim to create and inspire interest in all forms of typographic communication. Working closely with education and industry, ISTD establishes, maintains and promotes typographic standards through the forum of debate and design practice. Membership is awarded to practising designers, educators and graduating students who demonstrate, through the quality of their work, their commitment to achieving the highest possible standard of visual communication.
