About Me

I am a conceptual senior graphic & display designer, with project management and account handling skills;  with the versatility to work across different mediums, team sizes and project scales. 
Working mostly within the retail display sector has provided me with exposure to a great breadth of diverse design and production projects. I have designed & managed projects for a range of clients - for internal & external displays, events, small-scale graphic/ marketing projects and large-scale international campaigns.  Working within a team, managing small design teams, freelancers and suppliers, and running projects alone. 
Outside of my full-time work, I have worked on freelance graphic design projects for small businesses, artists & charities; where I have given creative direction to new brand identities and developed a design style for small start-ups. I have also recently curated and coordinated the program and creative of a charity fundraising event. I want to continue to expand on the types of projects and the variety of clients that I design for.

Asprey, Black Mountain Films, Canada Goose, Casadei, Coast, Dyson, Esprit, Fenwicks, French Connection, Hackett, Harvey Nichols, Hatiku, House of Fraser, Hartig Yoga, Jaeger, Jimmy Choo, John Lewis, Joseph, Lacoste, LG, Mappin & Webb, Marks & Spencer, New Era, Patrón Tequila, Plan 9 Art Collective, Passions of Paradise, Selfridges, Sinead Breslin, Sports Direct & Lillywhites, Savvy Experts Online, Thomas Pink, Unite Student Accomodation, Watches of Switzerland.
