Overview

I've been working as a freelance designer since 2012. Prior to this I was Art Director for Weidenfeld & Nicolson (the literary imprint within the Orion Publishing Group) where I worked on covers for authors such as Judie Dench, Michael Palin and Julie Walters, to name but a few!

I now work independently from my home in North London or in-house with other creatives, designing all aspects of books from covers, integrated interiors and marketing material. My aim is to always deliver work on time and within budget.
