UK-based art director and graphic designer

My story

I was 14 when a school camp took us to a local, buzzing creative agency. Magazines, storyboards, wooden floors, vogue lettering, Neville Brody, logos and a pinball machine. I fell in love and I knew that's where I wanted to be when I was older. Originally from Cape Town, I studied graphic design at the Ruth Prowse School of Art. Since the beginning of my career, I've been creating professional branded content, identifying a narrative angle to add meaning and relevance.

 

After more than a decade of working in agencies and publishers in the advertising industry, I set up my own infographic studio, creating and producing professional branded content for clients.

 

Fast forward to the present and I still treat every project as my latest masterpiece and strive to push my imagination to tell visual stories to inform, educate and entertain audiences. I do this through years of practiced techniques using a unique combination of typography, data, photography, artwork and colour to create memorable material.

I am a senior designer and certified creative director on Visual.ly and you can also hire me on the Working Not Working platform too.
