About me

 

A creative and strategic art director specialising in print publications. Inspired by modernist design, I keep my work on trend and have the necessary skills, drive and ambition to achieve high-quality work faced by the challenges that projects can bring. I’m a logical thinker with a high standard of technical ability and attention to detail. I am experienced in working with leading brands – taking an initial brief and bringing it to life and ensuring it meets brand, commercial and customer requirements.
