Personal Statement

Passionate about good design, my ideal position would be one where I am valued as a multi-disciplined creative designer, with a
positive and flexible attitude to work and life.


I have a broad range of knowledge and experience including design for print and the world wide web. Extensive portfolio covering
corporate identity, stationery, brochures, catalogues, magazines, POS, exhibitions, advertising, illustration and websites.

Used to working in fast paced studios, I am confident in my ability to take a project from initial brief through all stages of development
to production/publishing. Although I enjoy working as part of a team, I am self motivated, working independently and prioritising my
own workload where necessary. I have good communication skills, both written and verbal, and I have increased my experience of
dealing with clients directly in recent times.
