I am a freelance creative working across the UK. During my previous roles I helped to gain some exciting new clients, worked with brands such as Hartley’s, Aldi, CrossCountry Trains, Russell Hobbs, Jacamo, American Airlines, Go Outdoors and N-Power, won various awards and created integrated campaigns, including TV for Vimto, Go Outdoors, Jacamo, Evans Halshaw & webuyanycar.com. I have won awards and received nominations with the Roses, MPA and Fresh. I was also recently shortlisted for Cannes Young Lions for the second year in a row and been highly commended for the Cannes Lions Media Academy competition with the BBC.
I have been managing digital projects for over 15 years in highly creative environments. My inspiration comes from being immersed in the creative and technical processes, motivating teams and fully owning the full project life-cycle to deliver beyond expectations. Working in London and Sydney, I have also implemented production processes as well as helping the owners to shape the agency direction across all disciplines. 2 years ago I joined Google Creative Labs and this year I left to focus on a startup, Beds on Board, with my brother and co-founder. I also consult on digital marketing and production through Thought So Ltd.
Me in a Nutshell. Ideas and innovation are what make me tick. I love to question and learn, as well as take action towards the goals in life that fulfil me most. I enjoy nothing more than spending time with smart, creative people who aspire to change the world. Past After attaining a degree in Design and Multimedia I spent several years honing my craft at some of London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy where I provided concepts for clients such as Nike, Coke, Adidas and Samsung to name a few. Picking up a Clio award and a competition winning short film in the process. Present I now run FOBI, (Full of Bright Ideas) A luxury design and Innovation Studio where I oversees the creation of projects for multi national companies using a remote team of super talented individuals. Future My goal in life is to never stagnate and to be a lifelong advocate of innovation. I'd love to create work that really makes a difference to people. I'm using my 20's as a time to experiment and learn by doing, before coming up with a crazy audacious goal to dedicate my life to.
I am a graphic designer, focused on branding, that has worked with a combination of independent clients and various agencies. I love creating identity systems, rooted in strong creative ideas and I am also really keen on infographics, as I enjoy organising information in a clear, simple and beautiful way. Constantly trying to develop my skills, with a passion for photography and illustration.
