I am a designer with 18 years experience in visual communications, publication design and art direction. I design documents with emphasis on clarity, creativity and the effective delivery of information.

I began my career working with Authors, Publishers and Editors to design and typeset, engaging books across multiple genres (most often for the education and trade publishing sectors).

Since 2007 have specialized in ideas based communication design for the built environment. Advancing the integration of graphic and urban design disciplines. Producing unique and innovative place responsive design outcomes with a strong emphasis on effective and compelling delivery of information. Working within multidisciplinary teams, I use intelligent layout design principles, typographic hierarchy and information graphics, to convey complex ideas with clarity and creativity to the stakeholders and community groups.

Today I freelance in both publishing and urban design teams worldwide, working  at a range of scales, in both two and three dimensions, crafting single letterforms, the design and layout of printed books & documents, to super-sized signage, art and environmental graphic systems.

Throughout my career I have been recognised with a number of national and international design, publishing and art awards. I have a bachelor degree in art and design, as well as certificates in photography, publishing, graphic design and communication.

My design outcomes get results, get admired and get noticed. I whisper, speak and shout visually and I would love to help you tell your story. Get in touch to discuss my work, design philosophy, rates and availability.
