About me

 

I am a London based multi-disciplinary designer, specialising in Interactive design, Illustration, Curation and Exhibition design. In all my positions I am responsible for guiding the design process, looking at emotive aspects of the experience and communicating this information through collaborative processes, proposals, prototyping, user research, and activations. My objective is always to reach a successful design outcome that can then be analysed and used as research for future projects. Overall, I create concepts and designs that illustrate and encourage interactive experiences while also exploring the relationship between people, culture, brands and urban spaces. My work is often inspired by social sciences, architecture, branding, and psychogeography. My experience within the PR and Entertainment Marketing sector allows me to solve design problems in new and refreshing ways, I am able to transfer strategies and skills into my design process in order to produce successful projects and campaigns.
