Biography

Based in London but originating from Durham, I've been working at MoneySavingExpert.com as an in-house Designer for the last 6 years. I've covered a wide range of areas in that time including web design, print design and mobile apps.

I feel I could be an asset to any team, with real world knowledge of working for a large company with strict deadlines. Working on freelance projects has also helped me improve my communication skills, ensuring that clients get the best results as quick as possible.

As cheesy as it sounds, design is more than just a job for me, it's all I've ever wanted to do and I thrive on learning new techniques, developing my skills and keeping up to date with new trends and styles within design. I'm an avid visitor of Brand New, a blog that focuses on major brand redesigns as logo design and branding really fascinate me.
