Under the microscope
I’m a senior creative working within the design, advertising and marketing industry. I have a wealth of experience including integrated design and project management.
I’m used to working with blue chip firms in-house and agency side. My work entails the delivery of complex solutions and I enjoy being hands on, from the critical briefing stages to the final completion of a project. I’m also conversant with client- facing and co-ordinating roles, including skills such as staff management, media buying and pitching.
A large part of my job is to develop branding and design corporate promotions through printed collateral and digital media. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the leading international companies, for example: Barclays, JLT, Unilever, VW Group, Campbell’s, McLaren, Lotus, Alfa Romeo.
