about

As a freelance designer I have been able to work in design and communications across a wide range of institutions, producing all kinds of material for print and screen. Clients have included arts organisations, including national museums and galleries charities campaigns and small and medium size businesses, as well as individual artists and poets, urban regeneration projects, academic organisations and the NHS.

I was part of a small team that set up, developed and maintained a website containing information for family members and friends of people with an illness that resulted in the symptoms of psychosis. Funded by The Wellcome Trust, it was developed with the help of researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (part of King’s College London) and mental health professionals working at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

I currently work with the National Institute of Health Research, an organisation enabling NHS services to provide the best possible care for everyone. The communications team and I produce printed and digital information that is distributed to academics, healthcare workers and members of the public using services.

My work with artists, poets and musicians includes producing publicity material and websites. I design album covers and publicity posters for musicians and bands and have worked with individual artists and galleries on books, catalogues and newsletters. I maintain several artists’ websites updating and adding to them on a regular basis. The best results being achieved through a collaborative approach, whether working with individuals or organisations.
