A BIT ABOUT ME
I have been working within the creative industry since I left secondary school at 16.
My original plan was to go on to study music (drums) at the Brit School where I was accepted, but between school and college I landed a part-time job in a repro-graphics studio in the West End and loved it. I have always been into art and design so when was exposed to the world of graphic design I knew it was what I wanted to do.
Since then I have worked my way up to the position of ‘Head of Creative’ for a digital-led start up.
I see myself as a graphic designer, designing for print and digital and everything in between with lots of experience of working directly with clients or through a project manager in a larger team.
I’m used to working under high-pressure as well as on projects that seem to take forever, always with a smile.
I have been involved with clients such as; emi, Defected Records, Bluewater, Bfi, The Bahamas Tourist Office, Air New Zealand, Visit Britain, Butlins and Thomson.
