Hello
With almost 2 decades experience as a Graphic Designer, I possess high-level visual communication skills and a strong understanding of the processes involved in delivering work within a competitive, client-focused environment. 

I have held the positions of Art Director at M&C Saatchi in London, Creative Director at Six Degrees on the Sunshine Coast, and more recently Senior Designer for Herman Miller Asia Pacific. In these roles, I managed projects from concept to completion, liaising with clients at all stages of projects in order to deliver successful outcomes.

Abilities
Concept 
I believe that designers are not employed to simply ‘make things look good’, I believe that compelling design comes from the understanding of form and function. This is why I take pride in my ability to generate strong simple ideas based on insightful strategic insight.

Direction 
I take control of all stages of a project with a hands-on attitude. I believe an idea is wasted if not implemented effectively with a clear outcome in mind.

Creation
My strong understanding of this process ensures a project will always be realised successfully. I have proven design skills with experience in both digital and print media. I also have advanced editing and animation abilities.

Software knowledge
Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut. Also basic knowledge of 3D packages such as Maya and Cinema 4D.
