#designislife

Design is not just a job for me, it is truly a part of who I am.

I get so much joy from design - from styling my own home to creating art and helping others bring their ideas to life through my skills.

To me, design is life.

Please get in touch if you'd like to see what magic we could create together...

Hi and welcome!

I am a seasoned Senior Designer who has been in the industry for many years and worked across a multitude of diverse clients, so while my experience is vast, my passion is still as strong as day one.

My specialty is to create simple yet chic designs that meet the brief and convey a message with minimal fuss – I definitely work on a “less is more” aesthetic without compromising or losing sight of the objective.

I’ve worked with newspapers, commercial printers, private clients, local government, magazines, advertising agencies, private businesses, consumer goods/services and much more, and possess more skills than just the creation of graphics.

I pride myself on a strong work ethic and on my ability to truly listen to a client. I relish the challenge of deciphering a brief by asking the right questions so I can translate ideas into something beautiful that captures their intended audience. This is what I truly believe to be key to producing an impactful and premium quality piece of design work. My approach is to always be honest, professional and operate with diplomacy, which is backed by many years of experience and skills.

Graduating with honours from the prestigious Media Design School, I have the goods, the personality, the passion, the knowledge and drive to deliver only the highest quality work each and every time.

I have an extremely high attention to detail (some would say that I am a perfectionist) so am a natural proof-reader, an intuitive troubleshooter. Those who I have previously worked for and alongside would say that I am full of ideas, enthusiastic, super friendly, professional, a total team player and possess the great combination of skills and qualifications in design for both print and online.

I have work experience, life experience and the ability to always see the ‘bigger picture’ so if you think you may like to work with me please reach out and connect.

Wishing you a happy day,

SENIOR DESIGNER | MEDIA PROFESSIONAL
