My own design practice is oriented around storytelling and connecting to my audience. I have a keen interest in editorial, layout, type, branding and illustration design. I have had the opportunity to participate in live briefs with companies like Brand Opus, New Blood and D&AD and excelled with ideas that tackle worldwide issues delivering my final outcome to the highest standard as well as enthusiastically presenting my work to my peers and course leaders. I have developed a passion for Lino printing and have attended many editorial, collage, adobe software design workshops. Working in a creative studio environment and collaborating with students and designers has been a massive part of my design process and enabled me to learn and develop as a designer. I now recognise that graphic design is a very powerful mechanism. It can be a tool for good or bad, it can spark change and enhance lives.
