About me
I am a freelance designer based in London, with 6 years of experience. Throughout my career, I have collaborated with a diverse clientele on a wide range of projects. With a background in working with design agencies and as an in-house graphic designer, I bring a wealth of expertise in branding, marketing collateral creations and website design. I also explore motion graphics in the form of logo reveals and short-form videos.

  • Fortress Financial Rebrand
    Fortress Financial RebrandFortress Financial is a start-up based in North West London where they assist their clients with mortgages, wills and protection needs. At the start of 2023, the founder reached out to rebrand the company as their old identity was no longer represented the company values. The rebrand entailed a fresh and adaptive identity that can be used across multiple touch points, specifically for marketing collateral. The new identity portrays confidence, trustworthiness and security by closely stacking th
  • Type Figures — Exhibition Design
    Type Figures — Exhibition Design'Type Figures' is an exhibition design on the development of typography. Using a range of environmental interactions and digital platforms the exhibition explores multiple aspects within the subject area, such as printing technologies and letter-forms. Each room within the proposed exhibition space contains either a physical or screen-based interaction. The screen interactions within the rooms are to engage users and supplement the understanding of the information displayed within the physical
  • ISTD 2019 - Ulysses
    ISTD 2019 - UlyssesThe premise of this International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) brief was to take a one sentence monologue, consisting of 4,391 words, and visually interpret the text in an innovative manner, to draw the attention of the reader, to engage them with a complex work of writing. This daunting piece of text, ‘Penelope’, is a stream of consciousness thus containing no punctuation and possible areas of grammatical mistakes. My approach to this brief was to create a publication where I would

    Diversity ProjectThe Diversity Project is a ‘representation of information’ brief response. The purpose of the brief was to give users a visual insight into the diversity of cultures within the University of Westminster's student body. A key approach to the project was the analysis of extensive information, and the translation of this information into graphic form. The informational material used related to five faculties within the university and the project led to a visual exploration of participating studen
  • London Venture Crawl 2020
    London Venture Crawl 2020The ‘London Venture Crawl’ takes students from universities to embark on an entrepreneurial journey. The Universities Creative Enterprise Centre set me the task of creating a set of infographic poster to promote the 2020 London Venture Crawl. Upon receiving the brief, a set of brand guidelines were provided to ensure that the design produced meets the requirements. The main feature that my client wanted was to have a design which contained a line which shows each destination which would be vis
  • Open Day 2018
    Open Day 2018The ‘Open Day’ project was designed to promote the Media, Art and Design campus at the University of Westminster. The direction I intended for the project was to design a playful poster, which spells out ‘OPEN DAY’ using geometric forms. Accompanying the poster is a short digital interaction which allows the user to go through each screen. As the screen unfolds, a piece of information is provided such as the date, time and venue of the event.
