I’m a creative designer based in the heartbeat of London.

 

My skills are principally within creative and digital design. I offer an established capability to conduct creative analysis and design solutions for multi-faceted campaigns including advertising, marketing, promotional activity or branding. I’ve worked on projects from many backgrounds and industries to create an implement and thoughtful visual campaign or piece.

 

I am adept at listening to client’s needs, analyzing them and applying the best designed solution using my own unique style and techniques alongside brand guidelines. Working freelance has taught me to take constructive criticism and adapt my ideas to clients and colleague’s feedback. Additionally, it has also allowed me to become organized, a self-starter and enabled me to meet deadlines in a high-pressure environment whilst managing multiple projects.

 

With my personal and freelance work I document and observe the world around us, telling the stories of lives and journeys as they pass through this adventure. I like to focus in on emotions being expressed and manifested in different mediums.

 

 I challenge the viewer to look from different vantage points and see something you’re not accustomed to seeing. Offering the viewer with an alternate perception of the given subject. My work is a voice for the voiceless. Allowing the opportunity for all to have a presence and to demonstrate that we are one.

 

We live in a world abundant with hate and divide, whether that be race, gender, faith or other.  My work is created to challenge that divide from the very core. Allowing for a new vision to set in as we continue to journey.
