About me

Hello and welcome to my profile!

I'm frequently uploading new portfolio pieces, so please bear with me while I have my construction hat on. That said, if you like what you see, I'm open for business.

I'm a versatile freelance graphic designer - who also worked as a design manager - with 23 years' experience. I've trained in a busy design agency, moved on to magazine design and was employed by a professional membership body, where I helped more than 1,600 projects over the finishing line. In the same position I won the MemCom Award for Best Rebranding. As freelancer, I have worked on projects for Decathlon UK, Cadbury's, the NHS, Tourettes Action as well as several book designs, among others.

Here is what I do in a nutshell:

» Print design & artworking (any kind, any size)

» Corporate branding & guidelines

» Rebranding

» Catalogue & report design

» Magazine, newsletter & editorial design

» Book design & typesetting

» Illustrations & infographics

» Digital design (web graphics & banners, social media post images & appearance, website comps)

» UX design

» Design team & project management

» Print consultation & management

» Photography & art direction

» PowerPoint presentations & Word templates

» German + English editing & proofreading
