CEO, Founder, Creative Director, Designer, Coffee Maker, Thinking Hat Wearer, One Man Band, GC.
I am a content driven and relationship-focused creative designer who specialises in creating beautifully designed solutions that fit the purpose.
Prior to going solo, I received my B.Des (Communication) and a B.Des (Honors) with a focus on Graphic Design Strategy from Otago Polytechnic School of Design in Dunedin, New Zealand. Whilst studying I received a Silver in the 2016 Designers Institute of New Zealand Best Awards for my work on Sugar Coated. Upon finishing my studies I worked within a marketing and design agency for two years, whilst also working as a freelance designer working with clients based in both Dunedin and Central Otago.
That about brings us to now, living in my scenic hometown and working with people and businesses of all shapes and sizes all over New Zealand, whilst overcoming the big things, like rural internet and distracting scenery.
