About

Hello. I’m a London based Graphic Designer with over 12 years experience working across a broad range of projects from digital, web, point-of-sale, packaging and branding. I’ve lived in Malaysia, Melbourne and London where I’ve worked for a variety of businesses ranging from startups to cozy, medium and large agencies in sectors that include fashion, beauty, media, charity and entertainment. I have a keen interest in digital tech, a curious mind and a passion for learning something new. Outside the design world, I am a hobbyist photographer, adventure foodie, badminton player and travel explorer.

 

I’m always open for creative challenges! If you have a project that you think I may be able to help with, drop me a line through linkedin or twitter.
