An innovative and concept driven designer with 6 years professional experience in creating multidisciplinary solutions for brand, print and digital.
I am an ideas focused person. Passionate about telling good stories that connect people with brands like never before. Ever hungry to progress in this evolving industry. My current appetite lies in conceptual thinking, responsive web design, mobile
apps and social media.
This is supplemented with a good sense of layout, typography, and great deal of common sense with the ability to listen. Beyond this is a commitment to crafting great intuitive work for clients and customers.
I am a sociable, presentable and confident person who works well with teams, but also has the bow string of self-motivation. I live in the real world and understand that clients, briefs, budgets and deadlines are not always friendly, but for me that’s part of the challenge.
- Generating original ideas for a given brief with high focus on quality and detail.
- Producing considered design based on a good knowledge of design principles and best practices.
- Communicating confidently with strong interpersonal skills.
- Agile collaboration across multi-disciplinary teams.
- A good sense of humour, a team player and an advocate of embracing the latest in digital technology.
