Foremost my skills lie within design, currently my attention lies within Digital design and progressing with my talents there. To assist with my digital design knowledge I am learning to code, with assistance from my team. Alongside digital I work with a publishing company, Soapbox Press, this is my love and passion; beautiful, beautiful books and having the opportunity to design and publish them is incredible.
After finishing college uninspired by my A Levels and having no idea what to do, I found myself (through some ridiculous stroke of luck) in one of the best UX departments in North America... not even knowing what UX stood for. A year and a half down the line, 15 trips abroad and a whole lot of time spent wondering what on earth I'm doing, I'm now lucky enough to work at one of the coolest startups in the East End.
I'm Lead Creative at Human After All where I've designed and overseen projects for Everyman Cinema, BAFTA and Facebook. I specialised in print and editorial design working on Little White Lies magazine in the years after I graduated. More recently I have begun to focus on digital projects with the same attention to detail and love of typography.
