Bio

I am an Auckland based designer with over 15 years experience in the advertising and design industry. I have a diverse background across many areas of the industry, resulting in a high level skill set across print, brand identity, packaging, concepting/visualising, digital, retail and illustration.

 

Clients I have produced work for have been in telecommunications, banking, automotive, retail, defence force, food and beverage, corporate, charity, and more. I work well under the fast-paced pressure of the industry, quickly producing high-quality work as part of a team or independently.

 

I have a BDes (Hons) from Massey University Wellington, and have a high level of experience across the usual Adobe software - Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
