I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else! I’ve always wanted to be a designer of some sort even as a child. When talking about careers in school I wanted to either be a designer, a footwear designer, an architect and randomly, a firefighter. I’m not fantastic with heights, so it was going to have to be the design route!
I love drawing and illustration, and I would always make my friend’s birthday presents and cards. I studied art & design, graphics and IT at college, where I quickly realised that I wanted to be a graphic designer.
My first job was at a print-based design agency which was fantastic opportunity to learn how to design across both print and web. This has held me in good stead for the 12 (sshhhh!) years I’ve been working in design and even now I still get a bubble of excitement when a new design job begins.
