Publiceye Advertising & Design Period: July 2009 - June 2011
Position: Senior Graphic Designer

A truly varied role where I got the freedom to express myself on a range of projects in print web and brand work. This involved designing billboards, brochures, magazines, websites, packaging, logos and much more. With clients like L’Oreal, Hawkins Construction, Olympic Gym and Dirty Dog to name a few, I had to constantly adapt to fit with my client’s style, something I did with ease. Being a smaller agency it was all hands on deck and not only did I take work from concept to completion, I was also involved in managing my clients and my workflow. Being one of the senior designers in the studio I also assisted the other designers in the studio with their design work and offered general support.

Position: Senior Graphic Designer

It was a face-paced role where I worked on print, web and brand jobs, and was also involved in promotions for London Fashion Weekend, Nike, Mango, The Devil Wears Prada and many more.

Visual Dialogue (UK) Period: January 2003 - October 2005
Position: Graphic Designer

A role that gave a great deal of variety and control. This included print, web and brand work where I managed my own jobs and liaised directly with the clients.

Visual Newmedia Period: August 2000 - March 2002

This was a great first design job to cut my teeth in the world of design. It gave me a chance to develop my style and see what design in the real world was about.
