I have been working professionally in the design industry for nine years, starting out in the big smoke working for the vintage inspired lifestyle brand Cath Kidston before making the move to the beautiful Cornish coast to join the team at a leading design agency in the South West.
I’m now a freelance graphic designer based in Cornwall. Specialising in print based design and experienced in brand, packaging, marketing material, brochure design, POS and bespoke signage.
I am always looking for new exciting avenues to explore and am available for commissions and collaborations. Feel free to get in touch to discuss your next project.
