Before a return to contracting I was Senior Digital Designer for Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media. For 5+ years I worked across across a wide range of projects. including: Web Design, Advertising, Smartphone interface Design and Google search integration. Previous to VM, I was freelance for about 5 – 6 years.
My strengths lie in UI Design, Digital Design, Layout, Logo and Identity, UX, Typography, Illustration and Icon Design, Wireframing and Prototyping.
I use a wide range of tools. As well as traditional hand sketching and drawing, I am proficient across a wide range of Adobe Apps, Principally Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and XD. I have extensive experience using Sketch and Figma, Zeplin, Invision, Invision DSM, Zero Height and prototyping tools like Marvel and collaboration tools like Abstract. I'm pretty comfortable jumping head first into using new tools and methodologies and I am also experienced in building Design Systems and using Atomic Design principles within my design process. So I'm pretty adaptable when it comes to fitting into new teams.
