Overview

I am an experienced graphic designer with both in house and freelance design experience. I have enjoyed a great variety of work. My portfolio shows the broad range of creative formats that I have worked on including Children's Magazines, Picture books, Licensed characters and non-fiction titles. Besides publishing my portfolio also includes tender documents and marketing for clients including the BBC, film directors, photographers and ecommerce businesses. The scope of my work varies from pitching for new business, marketing material for online retailers, children’s charities and local community events.

I have great communication skills and I can work effectively within a team, with authors, editors, illustrators, and publishers as well as being equally comfortable working independently.
