I am an all purpose in-house designer, I enjoy roles which are challenging and diverse. I enjoy positions where no two days are the same. I am very flexible with a broad skillset that allows me to get the tasks required of me done.

I have always been interested in design and art. I am highly skilled in all the relevant software packages including Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, GSAP, Google Web Design, Sublime Text, XD and Figma. In addition to having some experience with After Effects.

I led in-person training sessions teaching the design teams at museums and cultural institutions design how to create effective online advertising as well as practical hands-on training on how to design and build banners.

I am a proficient, accurate and forward thinking designer with strong creative skills. Excellent attention to detail, with the ability to work under pressure and to tight deadlines.

I have worked in print and online designing a variety of materials for multiple applications. I am confident working across multiple disciplines including website design, branding, communications, advertising and marketing. I currently manage a small team of designers.

I can take projects from concept to market. From coming up with an idea to making high-end Photoshopped composition artwork, photo retouching, online static banners, vector art and logos using Illustrator through to laying out everything in inDesign and preparing it to go to press. Plus designing and producing HTML banners, emailers and microsites to support promotions or product launches.

I am highly capable and motivated to undertake any project big or small.

My hobbies and interests are competing in triathlons, keeping fit and advancing my knowledge of design by visiting galleries and exhibitions. I also enjoy watching movies and reading up on the latest trends in technology and design.
