Based in Stockton-on-Tees in the North East of England, I have over eight years of commercial experience designing for print and web. I’ve helped organisations of all sizes and industries achieve better results by crafting eye-catching, effective and engaging design solutions.
Originally from Durham, I studied at Sunderland University where I graduated in 2008 with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree. After graduating, I began freelancing and landed various design jobs before joining CPI as Lead Designer, where I currently head up the very talented in-house design team.
Over the years I’ve worked for a huge range of companies from small start-ups and large corporates, to local councils, sole traders, charities and SMEs – all from a diverse range of industries. Clients include large corporates Unilever and Tata Steel, musician and activist Mike Park, specialist care and support provider Careline Lifestyles, the non-profit Plea for Peace Foundation, the UK Government’s High Value Manufacturing Catapult, and footwear specialist Scorpio Shoes to name a few.
When working on a project, I ensure a collaborative process is maintained with the client at all times, closely involving them from start to finish. I help the client get to the heart of what they require from their design, then use my skills to craft a solution that meets their business goals. Through my expertise in branding and identity, print design, web design and front-end development, I’m able to ensure clients’ brands and projects are brought together in a cohesive and consistent fashion across all media.
