Profile

More

I am a designer, writer & Illustrator based in Brighton. I love stories and storytelling. It informs all of my work, from brand identities through to illustrations for children's books.

Since graduating from LCC I set up STORY, for which I have been selected for a number of awards and prizes. STORY was showcased at Pulse London this year, following a successful Kickstarter campaign. www.wearestory.co.uk

Alongside STORY, I set up studiosmith&wonder, where I undertake freelance graphic design and illustration work. I've re-branded several diverse companies over the past 18 months, worked on a web design project and am currently working on a packaging project for a local business.

Prior to studying for a design degree, I worked as a creative producer for leading arts organisation Artangel, worked as an associate producer for Manchester International Festival and curated and produced projects for the Big Chill and Brighton festival. 

Please get in touch if you'd like to work with me!
