About me

 

AGE 4 - 6: Coloured in the carpet with heavy felt tip markers, keeping in the lines at all times. AGE 10: Drew cartoons of The Simpsons and Pokemon characters as requested by my classmates. AGE 18: Set up bunk in the A-level art room so I could paint at any point. AGE 21: Graduated from The University of Nottingham with a first in Art History. Realised how imagrey works, how it can effect people and how to communicate my ideas. AGE 21 - 22: Green and just out of uni, found myself working in the creative department at Butlins. Used this role to my advantage being exposed to marketing, account management, creative direction and copy writing. AGE 22 and a half: Had an epiphany—needed to become a designer and stop bad design. AGE 23: Studied Graphic Design at Central St Martins and Shillington College. Interned at a few studios. Found my calling in life! NOW: Loving life, giggling at obscure things and freelancing at The Dots—a creative version of Linkedin designed to connect creatives to commercial opportunities. My role was instrumental in rolling out offline and online creative pre and post launch.
