I'm an Art Director and graphic designer working in the publishing industry, with a passion for creating bold and visually arresting designs using strong complimentary or contrasting colour palettes. My aim is to always treat covers as if it were a poster for a film. I specialise in typography and commissioning conceptual photography and illustration. I've worked with the world's top photographers, art-directing shoots with a vast number of talent in the entertainment industries. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is collaborating with editor and writers to translate their brief and vision into something original and though-provoking.
