About my work

I’m a brand design expert. I work directly with businesses, institutions and self-employed people who either need new brand identities or to refresh their existing ones. I offer creative design solutions for:
  • logos, stationery and brand tool-kits – plus guidelines on how to use them
  • printed materials including brochures & leaflets, books, roll-ups & posters, packaging
  • visual design (not coding) for digital applications such as websites, banner adverts, PowerPoint and Word templates
  • websites that are created from existing toolkits
  • environmental applications such as exhibitions, wall graphics and wayfinding signage
As a freelancer I support design studios at all stages of a project, including strategy, ideas, pitches, concept development, applications and guidelines. I enjoy freelancing and bring that enjoyment to the projects that I collaborate on. I’m a team player, reliable and committed to maximising creativity whilst getting the job done on time and within budget.

About me

I’m an independent graphic designer and art director, originally from the UK but living in Germany since 2007. In 2015 Hamburg became my adopted home and I was awarded German citizenship in 2019. I have gained a broad and varied experience working for some of the best known design studios in London and Europe. Click on CV for more details.

My British background in design continues to influence me today: I am always looking for clever visual ideas and bold, unexpected creative solutions in my work. Thinking first, asking questions, exploring the bigger picture and understanding the needs of clients and their customers are also part of the job.

As a junior designer I was very much inspired by Swiss Style and the Bauhaus and this love of reduction and simplicity has remained with me throughout my career.

I share a studio space with other creatives in the historic Speicherstadt in the heart of Hamburg.
