About me

Having completed a BA Honors Degree at Kent Institute of Art and Design in 2003, receiving a 2.1 Honors Award. I have gained over 10 years experience in the design field in the UK as a Graphic Designer.

I possess a wide range of abilities that combine innovative art and design principles. Furthermore, my expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite will allow me to play a crucial role in the implementation of your design initiatives. I feel my experience is beneficial working in print and digital. Having large format print knowledge is a niche skill in this ever-changing digital market, but also being able to have digital knowledge and knowing the differences and what works well on each platform I feel sets me apart from other designers. I have over 10 years experience working in agencies, consultancies and in house studios. I have been in charge of overseeing brand guidelines and making sure they are adhered too.

I have freelanced in London for agencies such as WPB and Ranch, and also for Smurfit Kappa in Chelmsford and also for Mercedes-Benz in Milton Keynes I am now working at TUI UK and Irelands head office in Luton for 8 years. Thoughtout this time I have produced window displays and instore print. I have also created digital billiboards using AfterEffects. I am now the Senior Cruise designer for Marella Cruises.

The following are highlights of my skills and accomplishments:

- Sole designer for Marella Cruises.

- Oversaw the Marella Cruises designs for the onboard print, in addition to campaigns from idea to completion like Electric sunsets, the 90s cruise in September.

- Developed numerous marketing programs (logos, brochure items, posters, infographics, presentations, and advertisements) that have improved client transactions by making it the 3rd largest cruise line in the UK

- Time Management Skills: Manage up to 5 projects or tasks at a given time while under pressure to meet strict deadlines
