Hello there! I am an Auckland-based freelance designer and illustrator, with diplomas in graphic design and film-making from Yoobee School of Design. I create a variety of print and digital content for my clients (including character designs, comic strips, posters, logos, presentation clip art, packaging designs and app icons), developing strong research, concept design and pre-press skills in the process. I am experienced with the Adobe Creative Suite on both PC and Mac, and since 2014 I have moved into creating motion graphics and 2D animation using Adobe AfterEffects, Premiere and Audition.
I have a firm grasp on the importance of following a brief (but also thinking laterally); coming up with creative ideas; working within a team as well as on my own; planning things out while remaining sufficiently flexible; and paying attention to the nitty-gritty details of a project.... without getting lost in them. In many cases, this has involved not backing down until a particularly frustrating design challenge has been overcome - which, of course, is the fun part!
I love coming up with and developing ideas, and finding creative ways to make a design that little bit different - anything that fires my imagination, I’m all over it....
