About me

Hello. I'm a passionate and creative individual with 16 years graphic design experience.

I have worked in various design positions: In-house, agencies and freelance.

I previously worked for the largest children's publisher in the UK. Employed as Art Director for Marketing & Custom Publishing. In this role I worked on well-loved brands such as: Disney, Star Wars, Minecraft, Angry Birds, Barbie, Tintin, Fireman Sam, Postman Pat, Winnie the Pooh, Thomas & Friends and Mr Men to name a few. As well as established authors and Illustrators such as: Michael Grant, Michael Morpurgo, Jim Smith, Julia Donaldson and Roald Dahl.

I have exceptional knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, as well as Microsoft technologies, utilising the latest creative tools and techniques. I am highly proficient in design for web, film, editing, trailers, interviews and animation.

I fully understand the importance of a coherent look for business and understand brand style guides, with 9 years experience of the licensing and publishing industries.

I'm always involved in other design projects (from a non-publishing background). Most recently in theatre, technology, Interior and the music & entertainment industries.
