I work with art directors and businesses to make important information more effective through illustration and design. My aim is to increase profitibility through high quality visual communication, whether working with existing brands or developing new visual identities. I create illustrative work that is both beautiful and effective, solving problems and attracting customers for my clients. My commissions include work for editorial, design, advertising, interiors and publishing.

Thanks to my design agency background, I have a great understanding of advertising, design, layout, project management and print production (as well as an obsession with typography!). I also give talks at universities and creative events, such as Glug, and I work as a mentor with – a community scheme that helps small businesses and charities. I am a huge encourager of creativity and believe in its effectiveness within many different industries.
