About me

I have almost three years agency experience, leading on branding, animation, print and digital work, managing projects and mentoring junior colleagues. What motivates me as a designer is the opportunity to add life to something, whether that's a piece of writing, an image, or a brand idea. I like to really dig deep into a brief, and explore beyond styles and trends to create something uniquely suited. I'm a bit of a general knowledge geek, and am able to draw on a wide variety of visual references, from history to science to film and art history, to inform my design.
