About me

I have 10 years of experience in the graphic design industry, working in-house, at agencies, and running my own business. In that time I’ve served a wide variety of clients across Nottingham, the UK, and Europe including industry-leading brands like the Bundesliga, Go Outdoors, Crystal Palace, and many more.

Knowing what works

Impactful graphic design is about knowing what works for each business and its audience. Getting to know your organisation, understanding what motivates your audience, and how your brand communicates to them is an integral part of my process.

Working with you

Whether you’re an agency, the head of a marketing department, or a business needing support with graphic design, I can help. Having worked internally with great teams and individuals on some fascinating projects over the years, I understand that each and every business and person I’ve worked with is unique.

My Journey

My journey into freelancing started with a desire to work on more rewarding projects than what I was getting in my agency role at the time. Therefore, I started with my little Instagram page and started off by creating bespoke football posters as a passion project, which you can view on my Behance profile.

My creative, experimental work was noticed by Patterns of Play, who invited me to design a series of posters to feature at their Group Stage Exhibition celebrating the forthcoming Euro 2016. My series titled Euro’s Greatest Goals featured famous goals in the competition’s rich history.

One year later, following this exciting opportunity, I was approached by the Bundesliga, who had seen my work on my Instagram page. This was a dream gig for me, and it was a great motivating factor in taking the leap into full-time freelancing. I’ve worked with the Bundesliga social media team on several occasions throughout my freelance career.

Working in the sports industry is an incredible passion and is rewarding for me; however, I’m not limited to that specific industry. I’ve built a portfolio of clients within industry sectors such as tech, IT, food, restaurants, and more.

All of this experience has brought me to where I am today, with almost 6 years of experience operating as a freelance graphic designer! Take a look at my graphic design services and case studies, and if you’re interested in working together, please get in touch.
