About me

 

?I am a creative and imaginative young graphic designer, enthusiastic about creating new concepts and pushing the boundaries of design. I studied Graphic Design at Coventry University and have undertaken placements at SimONE (Shanghai) and Ogilvy, London. I was also awarded first prize for the Puffin Design Award 2013, and have worked for Ladybird books at Penguin Random House for the past 18 months. I specialise in branding, editorial, typography and print, as well as photography and traditional printing techniques.
