Having art directed magazine titles such as House and Leisure, John Lewis, Edgars Club, Woolworths Taste, EatOut & Sun International’s Prive, as well as being a Creative Group Head on Edgars, John Lewis & Checkers, and a Creative Director for Ackermans, I have gained invaluable experience and the ability to manage a team as well as steer a brands creativity forward.
I have extensive experience in rolling brand elements across all print, experiential and digital mediums.
With an awareness of current trends, as well as a cognisance of my own individual style I have created smartness in design that has made a definitive mark on the industry, as well as contributed to numerous awards, accolades and an increase in sales where relevant.
