I'm a London-based graphic designer, illustrator and creative who enjoys big bold colours and even bigger and bolder typography.

Currently a designer on The Sunday Times Culture, working in print and digital. Primarily creating spreads, artwork and layouts for every issue, I've worked on a variety of highly acclaimed projects like 'The Sunday Times Guide to Star Wars' and creating promotional material for their annual 'Peter Frasers and Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award'.

I've also recently worked with such clients as The Fan Museum Greenwich, Sony Music and Syco Entertainment and has previously been featured in WIRED magazine.

In my spare time, I am working on illustrations for an online movie discussion group as well as pursuing exciting collaborations and projects through creative freelance opportunities.
