A bit about me*
I consider myself a ‘slashie’; designer/art director/stylist. On any given day, you can find me designing logos, laying out magazine spreads or directing photo shoots.
Where it all began
Balancing my chai latte-filled 021 Pantone mug, and juggling more than a handful of corresponding Pantone markers (mostly unused), my loyal MAC and I eagerly stepped out of design school and into the unknown of the professional world. After five or so years in the industry, my skills expanded to follow my interests in Art Direction and Styling. Now, with over ten years experience under my belt, I've ended up with a wide array of creative skills... if you can dream it, I can make it look good!
What’s it to you?
After years of refinement, my once eclectic and motley assortment of skills have been cropped, brightened, and retouched into a finished product ready for use. I can help you out with whatever design-based project you have. Do you have a clever idea you want to get out there? Perhaps it's a new company, exciting product, new look, or an event? Maybe it's not very clever at all and just needs an extreme makeover. I'll always strive to produce something unique - either from scratch or by adding to your current style. The only time you'd get a cookie-cutter design approach from me is if you're actually trying to sell cookie-cutters!
So what can I do?
What's with the weddings?
Ok sure, you may have noticed a fair bit of wedding-related imagery in my gallery. Fear not, I am not a bridezilla, wedding-tragic or even wedding-insta-stalker. For many years, I worked as an Art Director for a number of wedding magazines, (And yes, in case you’re wondering… because of that, I DO know the average price of a wedding and the average age of a bride and a whole lot of other random wedding trivia!).
Like what you see? Drop me a line, email me your bullet points or just send me some scribbles on the back of a napkin. I’ll help you pick and choose which of my slashie skills will work best for your project. As you can see, I have quite a range of tricks up my neatly folded sleeve!
*TLDR; I do creative stuff, you need creative stuff = hire me
I'm based in the Sydney area, but design isn't geographically challenged.
