I’m obsessed with grids, layouts, colour, and type. I spend hours on the web bookmarking designs I love. I believe that good design is not just beautiful, but also well-researched, effective and user-friendly.
I've worked on several websites and over a hundred mobile apps, with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses. I am a team player and can work well under pressure and tight deadlines.
Visual & Technical Skills
I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite and Sketch, with working knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, XCode and Android Studio. I believe these skills contribute to the overall quality of my work.
I have a Marketing degree and worked in Advertising and Social Media before I became a designer. I understand target markets, consumer behaviour, and the importance of user testing and research.
