About

Hello I’m a London based designer specialising in fashion editorial imagery, branding and product design. I’ve been working in design for 10 years with a variety of brands from established to start ups. My role often involved coming up with concepts and seeing them through to completion.

I studied at University of Art London, Chelsea College of Art and Design. After graduating I set up an art and design magazine called Remedy, supporting new artists from across the globe. Later, whilst working as a designer for various brands, I set up my own wearable art label in 2012. The label was featured in London Fashion Week with Shopcade and distributed through Not On The High Street for 4 years, as well as exhibited at Candid Art Gallery and Spitalfields design fair.

Along with running the label, I currently teach digital design at The BRIT School, creating courses that educate 14-19 year olds how to develop their design skills as well as understand the psychology behind social media. I’m passionate about showing young people how powerful design can be and supporting free education.
