Mid-weight designer/creative artworker with five years experience specialising in print and packaging. Having worked both agency-side and within printers I am equally comfortable with sketching out design concepts to creating print-ready artwork files.
I am an advanced user of Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, have a working knowledge of 3D software (including CINEMA 4D and Rhino) and am a competent user of front-end digital technologies, proficient with HTML, CSS and WordPress.
Before my working life I completed a bachelors degree at De Montfort University, achieving a First-Class Honours in Graphic Design and Illustration.
Point 6 Design, London
I am responsible for creating packaging design based on master artwork files for Philips Avent. I work closely with Philips’ in-house design team to ensure master packs are suitable for implementation. Projects include: NPD packaging for anti-colic bottles, positioned for the NAM market; design refresh for the ‘Natural’ bottle range (80+ SKUs); new packaging design system for glass feeding bottles, as well as artwork, production and finishing consulting across all product categories. I have also worked on packs for the APAC, ASEAN and MEA markets.
Other notable work involved creating a full brand from scratch for Ette + Harr, a men’s fashion accessory brand selling pocket squares and scarves. My involvement spanned the whole process from research, insight and strategy, through to deliverables such as the visual identity, brand guidelines, copywriting, packaging and e-commerce website.
