About

Profile

I am an independent designer from the North East of England where I specialise in creating passionate, imaginative and technically focused solutions for brand, print and digital design. I have over eight years experience and operate from a studio just outside of Durham, UK, but location doesn't limit who I work with, I am proud to have worked with multinational companies, independent brands and individuals from across the world. I also occasionally partner with design agencies that require additional support and skills on a project-by-project basis.

I prefer to work with my clients rather than for them, by doing this it provides a better level of understanding, which in turn leads to more creative ideas and stronger outcomes of which we both can be proud.

As an independent designer without the overheads of a large agency, I’m able to offer equally high standards of ideas and creativity, while providing a reliable service and keeping costs affordable.

Background

My design journey started back in 2008 after leaving college studying an IT diploma and found that my passion lay with something more creative than just building computers. I enrolled on to a part-time design course, which led me to work placement and a part-time role as a Junior Designer.

It was then I decided that this was the career path for me and went to university to study Graphic Design from 2009 / 2013 at New College Durham. During this time I gained several clients from word-of-mouth contacts to run alongside my studies, and upon graduating in 2013, I had built enough clients to take this from just the odd project here and there into a small business. Since then my skills have developed tenfold, and I have grown the business into an independent design studio where I offer long-term creative support and guidance to my clients.
