About me

I am a Northerner who lives in London- secretly Northern, apparently, until I out myself by talking about a 'bath', 'glass' or 'giraffe' (don't ask). Working in various areas, from film and photography to a stint at the Apple Store, has given me skills that I use to inform and advance my designs. As a multi-disciplinary designer and copywriter with over 3 years of industry experience, I'm enjoying being my own boss. My work ranges from branding projects, packaging design, art direction, event design, social media campaigns, email building and printed communications.

    • few intense years in the Virgin Trains Brand and Design Team gave me a varied experience in print and digital design and the role of brand guardian. As a Middleweight Brand Designer, I was required to juggle day-to-day design work and copywriting across platforms (real and digital) along with delivering large scale projects, from branding multiple Bike Hubs, creating onboard packaging or throwing a party. It was the epitome of work hard, play hard and have a sense of humour.
