About me

 

I create head to toe brand identities to help clients creatively visualise who they are. I graduated in design from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London in 2014, and already have experience working for design studios of all sizes, as well as having my own clients on a freelance basis. I've rapidly garnered experience working for almost every sector of brands, including retail, fashion, food, transport, healthcare, education, the arts, even whiskey, (but never cigarettes, never gambling). As an advocate of Social Design, I love nothing more than making things that actually benefit the local community, and the greater good. My personal clientele include, the NHS, the European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea, and the UAL: University of the Arts London. I'm a perfectionist, but never a control freak, passionate but also compassionate.
