Professional Freelance Graphic Design • UK

Welcome to
my portfolio.

I am a freelance Graphic Designer based in South West UK with over 10 years professional experience, designing for agencies and clients both in the UK and overseas. I have worked across a diverse range of creative fields with skills in advertising, branding, packaging, print and digital/web design.

Having spent 2 years living in North Island, New Zealand freelancing for agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising, Cowan Design, Affinity ID and One Design amongst others, I returned to the UK in 2012. Previous to my overseas experience, I worked for 7 years as a freelancer, designing for agencies and clients in Cornwall, London and Bristol UK.

Mypackaging designhas recently been published by Victionary Press, Hong Kong, in their 2013 design compendium "Gold & Silver"; and mybranding for a national advertising campaign has featured in Adweek.
