A London based Graphic Designer and Illustrator who is a creative and logical thinker curious of how things are made, with this curiosity translating into a passion for developing my skills and practice. Having an enthusiastic and flexible approach to the process of design, I believe in creating intelligent and clear visual communication and strong concept driven work. By keeping my interests in illustration separate for freelance and personal projects, a fresh outlook is given with each project helping fuel my transferable and adaptable set of skills. I am currently looking for a junior designer or intern position in a London based multi-disciplinary studio.
