Biography

Hello!

I’m a Melbourne based designer and art director with a broad background in both digital and print design. I enjoy thoughtful well-crafted design that makes sense.

After 12 years of working in design studios and advertising agencies I’m now a Senior Designer at Ogilvy Melbourne. And over the last three years I have been responsible for work on BMW & Mini, Carlton Football club, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, AAMI, Yarra Valley Water, and Arts Centre Melbourne.

I provide design thinking and art/design direction for:
– Brand / identity
– Digital and integrated campaigns
– Responsive web platforms
– Apps / interfaces

From 2008 to 2011 I was lead designer and front-end web developer at clickDM (now HARDWIRE). Where I worked with HOSTPLUS, GSK, UniSuper and Swann Insurance.

From 2000 to 2008 I was a designer at Mediation Communications working on print and interactive projects for; City of Melbourne, City of Greater Geelong, City of Port Phillip, Mentor Education, and ACMA.

Prior to that I attended the University of Ballarat, where I studied graphic design.
