With over 20 years of editorial graphic design experience, I am creative, reliable and able to deliver projects on time and within budget.
I’m currently freelancing at The Art Newspaper doing editorial work and helping out with special projects. Apart from working on monthly issues I've been involved with prepping work for daily issues in LA, New York and Hong Kong.
A redesigned supplement for The Armory Show in New York was well received by both the London and New York offices, this has led to a longer contract and more regular work.
Maternity cover for National Geographic Traveller (UK), lead designer on all supplements and co-designer on the magazine. Designed and published weekly HTML newsletters, commissioned travel photographers and illustrators. Created newspaper inserts for the Mail on Sunday and The Guardian. The magazine won a BSME award during this time.
Lead designer on the award-winning Big Issue account, responsible for layout, picture research, production and assisting the Art Director (occasionally acted as the Art Director which involved designing covers).
