Hello! I have recently gone freelance and am seeking any design projects. I am a motivated, confident, committed and creative designer with over 15 years of design experience previously working at Bonnier Publishing for Blink Publishing as Senior Cover/Book/Branding designer/illustrator, before that as Branding and marketing for Bonnier and also before that as Sales Designer at Penguin Books UK and Puffin Books club. I am skilled in design from Branding, POS, illustrations, mock-ups, web design, Cover and Book design, web banners, magazine design, creative marketing solutions and sales pitches. My most recent role as Senior cover designer allowed me to design covers for high profile books for the Robbie Williams, Jenson Button, Scarlett Moffat, F2 Freestylers, Vlogger Alfie Deyes and many more. I have designed for companies such as McDonalds, Waterstones, Nationwide, Bentley and The National Trust, and designed box sets including Roald Dahl, Peppa Pig, Peter Rabbit, Jamie Oliver and James Bond. These roles have given me an excellent insight into the creative side of design and all that it encompasses. It has encouraged me to develop a deeper knowledge of the role as designer and allowed me to express my talent in design working on adult and children’s marketing as well as working on various sales pitches including Anthony Joshua, Jenson Button, Adele, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and M&S.

I am confident with managing all aspects and stages of a design, layout, colour correction, and production and have the ability to manage multiple projects in a deadline-driven environment. I am highly proficient in InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, also i am able to use Final Cut Pro and after effects and other video editing software.I am a commissioned illustrator too and really love to Incorporate my talent at illustration in to my work.

I’m fun loving, innovative, eager to learn and possess strong skills in design, layout, illustration and have a sophisticated sense of typography.
