About me

Currently studying third year Graphic Design BA Hons at Kingston University, London. Collaborative and Multidisciplinary, I am a graphic designer who works in an interactive and dynamic way. My practice is test and research-led, with a focus on the function and practical use of design. I enjoy social engagement with users and clients, building on truths to form considered work in the form of digital, print, curation and event & workshops. I am a motivated and driven creative who is keen to learn and explore and I am excited by the future possibilities of graphic design to have a positive impact on the world.
