Bio

I am a creative, passionate and award-winning graphic designer thriving to create new solutions for both digital and print platforms. 

 

I have recently moved over from the fast-paced hustle and bustle of London, so when I am not sinking my teeth into a new project and finding a new creative solution to a problem, I am out exploring the mountains and beaches that New Zealand has to offer.

 

During my studies, I was awarded the Woodgate Stephens Master Printer award for my determination to discover and implement a new way of tackling the print media market. 

 

In my most recent role as Creative Solutions Designer, I was the lead designer for the team and took charge of not only the active design of the day to day work but of the art direction of the department and all creative content which it produced. Although I only have 2 and a half years experience in a creative design field, my knowledge, and hands-on experiences exceeds this and I am able to bring a new way of thinking to any project.

I'm best known for...

I am known for 2 things. The first of which was being the first person to be awarded the Woodgate Stephens Master Printer Award for producing a print magazine which was the first of its kind, something that could be shared between those with their sight, and the visually impaired through the use of Braille.

The second thing I am known for is being the only in-house designer for the commercial team working across 10 airline in-flight magazines around the world, this included everything, including the magazine re-design of Brussels and Qatar airline magazines.
