I’m a fun-loving kiwi graphic designer based in London. I am a bubbly, approachable person with a range of skills and experience. My passion is typography and layout design, it is here where I really thrive. I work well with a team and love contributing to its performance. The best thing about graphic design is the opportunity it gives me to express and explore my own ideas. There are no restrictions on my imagination, it’s a topic that allows me the freedom to experiment and grow as a designer, with each experience I have giving me a better understanding of visual communication and the design process. I also have a great passion for travel. From traveling away for a long weekend to new and exciting places, or discovering a new city. I like to apply this adventurous side to all aspects of life.
