Freelance Designer & Design Consultant
[May 2009 - present] Position – Senior Designer / Creative Director
For the past 5 years I have been freelancing and consulting for various companies and design agencies whilst working part time as the senior
designer at Hartley Stone. I have been mostly working with B2B clients, specialising in marketing, advertising, corporate literature, branding and
new media solutions.
I am regularly brought in for brainstorming sessions, some creative copywriting briefs and undertake any illustration projects that some designers
in the agency cannot handle. With comprehensive branding experience I also help out with any client branding style guides
Over these years I have worked with large and small teams of designers sometimes in a senior capacity and sometimes just to answer project
lead briefs. I have also worked as an in-house designer for some companies who use me regularly.

As Senior Creative it was my responsibility to direct projects
from brief through to completion, manage my team, liaise with
clients and deal with suppliers/printers on a regular basis. The
majority of work was B2B brand related, from (in some cases)
naming companies, corporate Identity, presentation material,
corporate literature, web design, advertising and marketing

design from packaging, product development and POS.
My role was very hands on, as well as keeping the studio
running smoothly and doing a fair amount of directing, I worked
along side my team to create some really great designs. I also
spent some time creative copywriting, creating mood boards
and illustrating when it was required.
