Overview

I'm a Book and Marketing Designer at HarperCollins Australia, where my work ranges from designing marketing materials and animations for books to designing covers and internals of a book.

I have experience in a range of genres and enjoy working on all genres from fiction to non-fiction with a particular interest in illustrated books / children's books. I am a creative that is meticulous with high attention to details and know the importance of being thorough and thoughtful when translating a brief into the most visually suitable and appealing cover.

I am also incredibly experienced in marketing design. I am able to help a book translate into the market with strong, aesthetically pleasing and eye catching marketing collateral to further push the book to its audience. This includes print ads, web banners, EDMs, social media assets and animations.

I love to collaborate and would love to create beautiful designs, bringing authors words and thoughts to life through visuals.
