Opposite Is the
work of freelance designer

Hello There.

Over my 16-year career I’ve learnt how to breathe new life into brands by reshaping client stories using research, ideas, strategy and execution. I’ve worked with multi-national retail brands through to startups.

I use functional designs and campaigns to provide creative solutions for both digital and print media.

I’ve dabbled In a few things Over the years.

In 2003 I qualified as a Graphic Designer, with a keen interest in packaging design. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to work on design campaigns for large household brand names. I’ve done everything from high-end retouching, branding and packaging design through to complex digital-user interfaces for national and international customers alike. I’ve worked on large product range re-brands and complete identity overhauls. I’ve art directed large photography shoots – entailing mood board planning through to strategic rollout structuring.

Skills Summary

Leadership
As a Creative Director, I've overseen the creative process and given guidance to designers, client services and clients alike. In this role I've learnt strategic and problem-solving skills, managing people, keeping an eye on the latest design trends, presenting and selling my work internally and externally, fluid communication and organisational expertise.
Openness
Throughout my career I've learnt that being open is of fundamental importance. I'm always looking to try new things from different angles. Being open and bold enough to put my work on the line has taught me a great deal. Receiving criticism after putting in a lot of effort is not always easy, but is of vital importance for improving and growing my projects to be better and more effective.
Problem-Solving
This has been a big part of who I am as a designer, and is almost always inherent to the projects I work on. Thinking ahead using consistent strategic design actively averts future hiccups and keeps things consistent during the design phase of projects and campaigns I apply myself to.
Dependability
With deadlines flying over left and right, being reliable is something I pride myself in. Clients don't only want talent, they want accountability and to know they can count on you. Managing the clients needs and making them feel they can rely on me, knowing I can problem-solve their issues and deliver strategic vision consistently is a key skill I've developed throughout my career.
