Designer & Art Director
January 2020 - Present
After spending a 2019 on sabbactical travelling across Asia, I returned to the UK at the start of 2020 to pursue a career working for myself as Designer and Art Director. Since then, my time is now split working for both awarding creative agencys and directly with brands/clients.
July 2016 - January 2019
LOVE is one of the UK’s leading design-led creative agencies, employing a compelling mix of specialists. Employed as a creative, my time was spent delivering work across numerous different disciplines for the likes of Diageo, Haagen Dazs, Umbro, Red Tractor and many more. In 2017 I was lucky enough to complete a four day training course learning 3D modeling and animation in Maxon Cinema4D.
North West, UK
July 2015 - July 2016
From July 2015 to July 2016 I spent my time freelancing for agencies across the UK as well as working independently for small businesses. During this time, I was also able to build on my close relationship with University of Central Lancashire, spending two semesters teaching the 1st and 4th year students.
Detail Creative, Manchester
July 2011 - July 2015
Fresh-faced and straight out of University I spent nearly 5 years at Detail Creative, a small start up design agency based in Manchester. Detail’s ethos to ‘Measure twice, cut once’ meant we became a trusted agency that lead to new work for adidas, adidas Originals, Under Armour, Oak Tyres and many more. As the agency grew, I grew too. From recruitment to pitch work, brand books to brews, I was part of the small team that helped Detail grow into an award winning agency.
September 2009 - August 2010
During my degree at UCLan I spent a year working as a placement for five leading design agencies in London. The year was spent developing my skills and learning about how a design studio goes about their day. The internships I was lucky to work at were Saatchi & Saatchi, NextBigThing, WonderlandWPA, Honey Creative and Mystery Creative.
