      Work history


      Nov 2017
      • London, United Kingdom
      • Full Time
      • I have been freelancing now for almost two years, mostly designing remotely. Recently I have been pulled into the world of book design- just finished my 4th book, designing for HarperCollins. I have also had commissions for graphics both for print and digital (maps and data visualisation), which is something I did at the start of my career and always have done to some degree, though in the background or incorporated into layouts. I am always up for a new challenge and have enjoyed the variety of work I have been involved in since leaving the Telegraph Media Group. A link to my portfolio will be provided on request, as I try to have some current work in it, which might not be published yet.
