Bio

Hi, I'm Charles. I'm from England, Manchester originally and have now been living in Auckland, NZ for the past 5 years. I'd consider myself as a multi-disciplined designer with experience in a wide range of sectors within the retail and advertising industries.

 

After contracting as a Graphic Designer for IKEA Australia, I took my experience to the advertising world of NZ and since then I’ve worked in a freelance and full-time capacity for both small and large agencies. I’ve honed my skills across a number of platforms and find myself edging towards the digital sphere as I continue to develop skills in conceptual design, retouching and animation. 

 

My creative approach – no matter the medium - is to stay as authentic as possible and find points of controversy or tension behind an idea that I’ve been assigned or am interested in. Ultimately the aim is to instigate the desire to learn more and be curious through creating memorable imagery. I tend to fuel this mantra by staying active, travelling and continuing to network with other like-minded people.
