Hello, I have over 20 years’ professional graphic design, branding and illustration experience. I’ve worked both in-house and remotely for many design and advertising agencies, from helping them win large pitches to illustrating small assets for social media. I’ve no preference between designing a piece of direct marketing for a bank or illustrating a worldwide campaign for a charity - I’ve managed both.

Many clients have also come to me directly to create new brands or refresh their marketing material, so feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss any projects.
