About me

A senior designer with 10 years of experience in variety of different industries, I have training in creating, building, and executing high quality brands; from branding - the product - to packaging. The experiences and industries I have worked in have made me very versatile, my skills range from design graphics for T-shirts, Print/Pattern design, Logos, branding collaterals, websites, mobile apps, social media posts, posters, magazines, presentations. I have worked on designing websites, android apps, and iOS apps. Working closely with developers and other designers to execute the final product. I have extensive experience in the Fashion Graphics industry, working with brands such as River Island, Armani Exchange, Buffalo, & Calvin Klein. I am a quick learner and adaptable designer when it comes to the swift fashion turnover. From researching the most popular trends, creating mood boards, designing graphics, to finalising the print on the t-shirts. I love to build relationships and create a streamlined process with my clients. Wether its helping a start up from scratch or revamping an existing institution, I'm always ready for a challenge and being there for the journey. I have flexible working hours and make sure the work is done in advance so as to exceed the clients expectations and save time for iterations.
