About

I am an experienced Graphic Designer, having worked in the creative industry for the past 13 years, in more recent years as a Senior Graphic Designer.

Born in the north of Manchester, I have always had a keen interest and desire to create. This started at a young age with cartoon characters and clay model characters. At school, my love of art developed and this led me to study a BTEC National Diploma in Graphic Design at college. During this time, I developed an interest in stop motion animation and I later went on to complete a degree in Moving Image Design, in which stop motion animation was a focus.

However after university, my career led me into the Graphic Design Industry, where I have remained. During this time, I have gained a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise. Throughout my career, I have also held a personal commitment and responsibility for my professional development, seeking out new challenges and training opportunities (both through my employers and personally). This has kept me at the forefront of the industry.
