I am a graphic designer with 14 years experience. I have strong creative and technical abilities, taking a creative briefs right through to finished artwork. I have been through several large branding projects which has given me a wide range of experience as a necessity of stress testing a brand through multiple channels. I have a strong print background so high end and experimental print specifications are something I’m quite comfortable with. I have worked both client and supplier facing, and am comfortable in both situations. I’m also an amateur Photographer.
