I’m a Graphic Designer and Illustrator; former graduate of Kingston University BA (Hons) Illustration & Animation. I love design. I have gained invaluable experience working for in-house Marketing and Design teams and with freelance clients. I’m now looking for unique opportunities to utilise and hone my creative skills, as an effective Designer and problem solver, by working with professionals within the design and advertising community. Most importantly, I’m chomping at the bit to learn more.

After 9 months as Equity Graphic Designer and Print Manager I was thrilled to be awarded with a company value award at the Equity summer conference. The 'We Think Differently' Award refers to the Inspiring Learning value best represented by original thinking (Inspiring Learning is Equity's parent company). It was wonderful to have the hard work I had put into the Equity rebrand process and the new Equity ski brochure being recognised in this way! But I was particularly pleased because whilst I have enjoyed the challenge of marketing roles, design is where my true passion lies and for that to be seen was a fantastic compliment.
