As a highly creative and experienced designer working across a broad range of industry sectors, I have a proven track record of delivering visually stimulating and well crafted artwork. I'm a massive music fan, and really believe that music and art/design are perfect partners, and feel that an interesting and well thought out visual representation of the music/artist gives the listener a richer experience. My taste in music, like my design tastes are wide and varied.

Since graduating from Huddersfield University in 1999 with a BA in Creative Imaging, I have worked my way up through the ranks from Junior Designer to Senior Creative. Since 2013, I have been a Freelance Graphic Designer, working on both short and long term contracts for leading Brand and Global Agencies such as Momentum World Wide (Manchester), Propaganda (Leeds), and worked on campaigns for BMW and the 2018 FIFA World Cup, amongst many others. These positions have not only added specific knowledge and experience, but also valuable insights into how industry leading agencies help to shape products and companies into modern and accessible brands.

Working in the design industry for 18 years has brought many benefits, including knowledge on how to Art Direct a campaign, how to organise creative projects and numerous different communication styles and experience on how to deliver highly engaging visuals. The combination of my extensive design skill set, alongside my passion for music would be a great benefit to any project.
