Since 1998

I am a Senior Interactive Designer living and working in London. I studied Graphic Design back in the days when the internet was just emerging - I have been there since the beginning.

I am a practical person who can work both independently, using my initiative to solve issues and work through projects, and I can work as part of a team where I can learn from others. I like the variety of working on multiple projects at the same time. From a design point of view, I can create a design from anything that I am given (or not) - I have worked on projects with customers who have very strong and comprehensive branding guidelines and assets from which I cannot deviate, to customers who could only provide me with a single logo (from which I created a whole microsite!). I have also had customers say 'I don't want to give you too much guidance because I want to see what you come up with'. A crystal ball to psychically know what the customer needs? I've got one (but it never seems to give me winning Lotto numbers).

I have been taking entire website projects from design, through build, to delivery.
