I am an experienced graphic designer based in Coventry, West Midlands UK. I have worked as a graphic designer since 1999 which has included ten years of employment in the design studio of a publishing house.
In 2009 I became a freelancer working with various business and clients. My responsibilities have included the design of books, magazines, banners, logos, marketing collateral, packaging, periodicals, catalogues, stationery and websites.
I have worked both remotely and onsite for large corporations, smaller companies and individuals, fitting into their teams and workflows whilst liaising with management, authors, editors and external suppliers such as commercial printers and illustrators.
I'm always looking for exciting work opportunities either full time, part time or freelance in which I can use and expand my skill set.
In 1999 I completed a Visual Communications HND and a Design and Electronic Media OCN at Warwickshire College in Leamington-Spa. I was then lucky enough to be offered employment as a Graphic Designer at LCP Ltd., an educational publishing house based in Leamington Spa. I worked there for ten years and became the Senior Designer.
Between 2004 and 2006 I attended further accredited training courses to learn software such as Adobe Flash and Macromedia Director. This gave me the chance to expand my knowledge of digital design.
When LCP restructured in 2009 they offered me the opportunity of continuing to work for them as a freelancer alongside various other companies. This has included projects with Oxford University Press and Brammer Buck & Hickman Ltd. where I have worked several long-term contracts since 2013.
