About Me

I am a Newcastle based Graphic Designer with over five years of experience working both in house and within a design studio. I have a degree in Graphic Design from Northumbria University and a Diploma from Lancaster & Morecambe College.

After graduating in 2011 I was approached by W&M Wholesale and began working there in the August. I worked as Graphic Designer for print, digital and online for their in-house brands: Start Fitness / Football / Cycles and More Mile Clothing.

I am currently working at Coffee Design Ltd, where I work with a range of clients from large multinational companies such as Amazon and Sage to smaller local businesses.

I follow a number of design blogs and enjoy learning about new technologies and trends. In my spare time I enjoy furthering my knowledge of web design and coding and have keen interests in both photography and typography. Over the years I have produced a number of typefaces, both for clients and independently.

Outside of design I have a fondness for bikes, books, burgers, guitars, cameras and vinyl. In 2015 I co-founded a micro brewery with a close friend and we are passionate about introducing 'proper', german style beers to our home county of Cumbria.
