Bio

I have extensive experience with designing everything from advertising, POS, direct marketing, corporate branding, catalogues and magazine layouts; to brochures, newsletters, annual reports and form creation.

 

I have a keen eye for detail and typography; my strength being layout and a comprehensive understanding of finished art and how print processes work for output.

 

I am fast and efficient with the ability to work under pressure to meet tight deadlines. If needed, I can also be left to project manage a job or lead others if required.
