About me

Having worked as a self-employed freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator whilst my son was very young, I am now searching for a full-time entry level position within the creative industry. I am a lateral, creative thinker with a versatile portfolio and wide breadth of experience in editorial design, illustration, brand identity, packaging design, artworking and copywriting. I take pride in delivering competing work priorities to a standard of excellence. With many facets to my working life and experience I have learnt to deliver against tight and complex timelines; collaboratively, with dedication, confidence, an eye for detail and resilience. I create distinctive identities, elevating a brand above the noise. Design concepts will be first hand-rendered; illustrations may be in pen and ink, digital or photomontage. I am passionate about Typography, its influence, and reflection in popular culture. I work diversely across media, adapting my style and response for each brief, offering the client a unique aesthetic from concept to solution.
