I love developing ideas from initial sketches through to the final result and seeing my clients benefit from great design solutions.
I believe good design, works visually as well as functionally.
I can help you design corporate branding, brochures, posters, business cards, flyers...
Basically anything you might send to print or need to develop your brand.
I design and build websites starting from clickable wireframes through to the finished live responsive HTML.
This includes mobile applications for iOS, Android and Windows.
I enjoy illustrating all kinds of imagery, whether it’s made as vectors, photoshop or 3D.
Used to create infographics, product promotions, t-shirt designs, icons and animation. For examples, check out my portfolio page.

AT A GLANCE
After my studies and getting my 1st class degree in Graphic Design, I started my design career as a print designer, but at the same time was learning web design and coding. Over the years of working for various design agencies, I moved my focus to online design. I'm now a freelance Digital Designer.
Since April 2012, I decided to go fulltime freelance to give me the time to work on my personal projects such as my clothing brand. Since then I now usually work for design agencies as a designer for hire, helping out on all kinds of design projects, and small businesses coming up with the creative direction for the project at hand .
