I’m a freelance designer and developer based in County Durham, north east England. I specialise in modern website design and development in addition to graphic design for print and branding. I love creating clean design whilst keeping it effective and creating impact.
My background is in industrial product design and I obtained a BA (Hons) from Northumbria University back in 2010. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to work in many different product areas. Including designing furniture for clients such as John Lewis and kitchen appliances for Indesit in Milan, Italy.
I have steered towards a career working with graphic and web design because I love the instant results a few lines of code can produce or how some sketches in a Moleskine can develop to become a company’s brand guidelines. I solve problems in simple, elegant ways. Design is a part of the process, a tool, used to bring new ideas into the world. It just so happens to be my favoured tool of choice.
Often designers may have a certain style, I don’t have a style as such, as every project is so different. I turn my hand to work with existing artwork, build upon brand guidelines or work in whichever way suits you or your company best.
I have interests and take inspiration from things that influence my style, but I don’t push these on your brand. It’s yours after all. I do, however, have a design mentality and that is to make it simple, but significant. I don’t sacrifice your message in the name of design.
I’m fortunate to have a great base of clients who continually refer me to their peers, clients and friends. They also say some very nice things about me, which shows that as well as delivering on the work, I’ve also been great to work with.
