Startup Fukuoka

This Startup Fukuoka City website was developed for the Fukuoka City Council. I prepared the design layouts and original illustration artwork.

Accent, was my first commercial theme developed for Shopify. It provides Merchants with a rich feature set, that gives you the power to easily customise the design and placement of elements.

It was an amazing opportunity to work on the redesign for the Oreo UK website. I also helped with some (not all) of the illustration artwork. My role on this project was limited to the design layouts. The actual build was completed by another team.
