Bio

I’m passionate about the transformative power of ideas, which are at the heart of all creative work. Applying a mix of strategic insights, design thinking, creativity and storytelling an idea is not only brought to life but experienced in an immersive and meaningful way, leaving a more enduring and lasting impression. I am a creative specialising in identity and branding, print and digital design. I have 15+ years of design experience working with both in house creative teams and creative agencies.
