I have worked in the creative field of Graphic Design for over 14 years, providing creative solutions for a range of brands and companies, and gaining experience in a number of key areas:

•    Branding and logo design
•    Art and photography direction
•    Styling and set design  
•    Print and pre-press
•    Marketing and Communications
•    Large format display graphics
•    Web design and graphics
•    Book and Magazine design
•    Mentoring and management of staff
•    Workflow and time management
•    Public facing sales and customer service

Whilst I am a creative to my core, I enjoy the aspects of organisation, responsibility and communication required in a managerial position and feel I have a lot to give in terms of my wealth of experience and enthusiasm for new ideas and developments. I consider myself a good juggler, thriving on maintaining the balance of a varied role.

I am a keen crafter, reader and writer. Maintaining a blog, crocheting and keeping up to date with my instagram account are my main creative outlets outside of work.
