I have a confession: I love ideas.
From print to digital, packaging to environments, I enjoy crafting a brand’s unique story in engaging and innovative ways. As such, I enjoy and welcome any design challenge. I specialise in branding and typography: essential skills for creating effective and inspiring customer experiences.
Working closely with each client to understand exactly what makes them unique is vital. This often requires plenty of questions, lots of listening, creative thinking and perhaps even more questions to learn the intricate story behind their brand. A well-informed and crafted idea, to me, is priceless.
Design is not just a job but a passion. We are here as creative thinkers to positively transform organisations and improve people's lives. I feel strongly about supporting the next generation of creatives, having written for several design publications, presented lectures, established an award winning Designers Society, an annual portfolio review event and was a committee member for the West of England Design Forum (WEDF).

If we were to live until we were 89, we'd have 4628 weeks to live. What have you done this week to be proud of? Make each week count!
