Like most kids, I was very curious (nosey) and had a vivid imagination. I never really grew out of this, I still love to listen to peoples' stories and come up with ideas to translate their message visually. I've been doing this as a designer for 15 years, helping businesses clarify their offer and find new creative directions to explore.
For the past year I've been supporting the UK's largest independent bathroom supplier, Roper Rhodes, as Senior Graphic Designer. Leading three other designers and working closely with marketing experts and product designers, I've ensured the pace of the studio and standard of work have met the demands of the business and it's network of bathroom retailers. This contract is soon to come to an and and I'm currently seeking new opportunities.
Previously, I have freelanced, co-founded and co-directed a branding studio Design& Co, worked in-house, agency-side and as an independent designer in Bristol, Seattle and Montreal. I'm now settled in the South West and love spending my time between Bristol and South Devon. If you'd like to know more, view my CV below.

I generate considered ideas based on solid research and strategy. When it's appropriate, I like to introduce playful elements through language, typography or pattern. My self-initiated projects explore themes of travel and migration through print and hand-made objects.
My approach is firmly grounded in research-led design, asking the right questions and analysing the results thoroughly.
Based on insight gained, I suggest a number of creative directions to apply across a range of digital, print and 3D media.
Clarification & Design
I refine chosen concepts into polished and effective communications through a process of meticulous editing.
Guidance & Senior Support
I help clients through the design process and create clear guidelines to follow. I also provide constructive feedback for junior talent.
