About me

I graduated in Design for Publishing at Norwich University of the Arts. While studying I've interned with the acclaimed publishing house Dorling and Kindersley and the The Sunday Times. I went on later in to the ad agency Williams Murray Hamm, where I worked designing and art-directing a book on the agency's works along the years. I'm currently with Orion Books where I've been developing my skills in book covers and editorial design. My day job is to keep engaging my personal creative skills, while challenging and breaking barriers that will help me develop a better and more sophisticated design. On some occasions, I get offered the opportunity to work in partnership with some new indie magazines, allowing me to work on other projects on a freelance basis. My creative approach - with each project - is to balance from the very start of a brief to final concept, an idea that is solid and self sustained that will speak for itself. This helps me mature from the very beginning a strong, appropriate and memorable well crafted solution. .
