Book size 210mm x 594mm, poster size 594mm x 841mm (A1).

I am a graduate from the University of Portsmouth, awarded a first degree in Communication Design. I specialise in print, although I enjoy all areas of design. I strive to find creative and original solutions, applying conceptual weight to each project I undertake, utilising the finishing methods and mediums best suited to deliver maximum impact. I am compelled by all areas of language and how it can be visualised, aiming to challenge the viewers perception and understanding.
I am currently working as a graphic designer at ilovedust.
