I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in Leeds with a solid background in logo, print and digital design.+
For me—whether it's trying to capture the essence of a company in a logo, or trying to increase a websites conversion rate—design is largely about solving problems.
My main focus is to create something which appeals to your users. It's important the message is clear and not drowned in an unnecessary amount of styles and treatments. I strive for an engaging but simple design. It's more about what to exclude than what to include. Knowing when to stop is key.
If required, I can pull together a team of designers, coders, videographers, copywriters, and SEO specialists. I can either put you in direct contact or if you prefer, project manage everything so you just deal with me. This way I can offer an agency-style service at a fraction of the cost.
I have a strong understanding of front-end development which gives me a realistic insight into the capabilities of digital design.Read more about me →

Nitty Gritty Research, Leeds
Branding • Responsive Website • Motion Design • Illustration
Brand Animation • Illustration
I worked closely with Leeds based Luto to create a brand animation which communicates their services to their target audience. This was done by creating a clear user-centred story. Rather than begin with ‘this is about us’, we started with ‘this is about you’. Therefore, the scene was set with presenting the problem; what happens when people can’t use their devices or take their drugs correctly? Then, together with information about Luto's processes and services, we outline the solution – good information. The animation features simple illustrations with clean lines to reinforce their message of making communications clear.
