With over 15 years experience working within in-house studios in businesses and freelancing in design agencies, I left a great job and went back to college to retrain and top up my skills. Attending Shillington College full time gave me the added skills and confidence to start my own studio working with clients. I offer branding, digital and print solutions for small and large businesses.
Whilst I was employed I had the opportunity to work on product design and also room set photography, art directing on set and on location. This experience gives me additional skills and contributes to different aspects of my design work. From print to digital design, my ability for having an overall vision helps with varied projects.
My interest and experience in interiors helps fuel my graphic design projects too. Each side of my business compliments each other with ideas for colour and form.
I often work with other designers, animators and developers on projects and I enjoy collaborating with others. I love living near to a city and although I work for myself I regularly meet with other freelancers and creatives to share ideas and projects.
I am a lover of simple design with a purpose together with bold shapes and colour. I aim to execute a clever idea in a simple way with added personality. My inspirations are Dick Bruna, Alan Fletcher, Hey Studio and Rejane Dal Bello. These studios have a common approach to design and execute projects in a bold and interesting way. Their ethos for the importance of play in their work allows for concepts with big personalities.
My dream projects would involve colour, cats, plants or food and my style compliments children's brands and products. But I put a great deal of heart and effort into any project that I work on.
