About me

 

I am a multi-disciplined Digital Designer who is passionate about well crafted design and motion. I have over ten years experience working for several digital and integrated agencies based in London. I’ve worked on a number of global digital communications campaigns for high-profile brands such as Channel 4, ITV, BBC, Sony, M&S, Virgin, Lloyds, adidas, Oxfam, Philips and London 2012 Olympics. I am used to working in fast-paced, deadline-driven commercial environments, all of which have included exposure to new business pitches alongside day-to-day live project work, always producing consistently beautiful creative work, on-time and on-budget. I also love all things handmade, from stop motion to constructing a garden fence from an old blind.

  • For the last 3 years, I’ve been engaged as Senior Designer at Super natural, a fledgling production agency that specialises in digital advertising production. Having joined the team in its first year, I’m thrilled to have played a pivotal role of the growing team and the evolution of project work, particularly in the shift from Flash to HTML5. I was the design and animation lead across high profile campaigns for brands like Channel 4, ITV, Three Mobile, Flora and Virgin Atlantic, and was instrumental in leading all house projects covering the relaunch of the Super natural website, social media assets and all sales collateral. With responsibility for overseeing Junior Designers and experience working with a multi-disciplined studio of Producers, Creatives, Developers, my design and animation skills cover a broad range of areas including artworking/retouching, illustration and character animation.
