As a designer I enjoy working in a highly digital manner and have a passion for creative photography and refined digital painting. The processes that I use are predominately digital whilst the concepts focus on raising awareness to our ever evolving planet and encourage well-being benefits through colour theory. With a coherent blend of design and contextulisation I aim to create designs for the men’s fashion market with a contemporary and sophisticated handwriting.

ABOUT ME

Due to my design style I am confident on the Adobe creative suite and enjoy challenging my skill set by experimenting with new techniques. I have a mallious eye for deatil which is evident in my work as I aim to keep a high level of clarity and definition to aid my style. In addition to designing I have a passion for trend forecasting and keeping up to date with the latest trends. Blending traditional and contemporary ideologies are key to my design ethos, The Peacock era during the 1960’s-70s where flamboyant outbursts in the menswear market largely inspires my work.

As a designer I enjoy working with innovative digital techniques with a strong focus on creative photography and digital painting. I work closely with colour and fashion trends to enhance my projects and keep them up to date with the fast world of fashion. To add depth to my projects I enjoy adding a strong underpinning of contextual research, including social, political and predominantly sustainable wellbeing. Combining these notions I aim to create sophisticated outcomes with my own contemporary handwriting. I am a hard working and thorough individual using my meticulous eye for detail to focus on the task at hand. I have strong time management skills and am able to easily adapt to situations.
