About me


I’ve been working as a graphic designer and art director for 13 years – both client and agency side. I’ve been involved at every stage of the design process, from concepting and communicating ideas through to design and interactive development and meticulous control over final delivery. Though foremost a digital designer, I’m proudly generalist, with a strong belief in putting good UX practice at the core of all work – from video content to complex online experiences to printed matter, the need to make work that has visual impact, delivers its messaging powerfully, fits the platform and is empathetic to the end user’s needs, applies throughout. I can communicate this to clients, I can guide work with data and research and I can listen and learn from developers and other specialists. I have strong technical skills in Sketch, Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, Flash, After Effects and FCP/ Premiere as well as recent experience in C4D.
