I have been providing design solutions for print and digital for more than a decade.

Establishing strong brands is at the heart of what I do. I’ve created magazines and journals for organisations including the Royal Air Force, Atlantic Treaty Association (NATO), OECD and the African Union. My experience is broad; developing marketing campaigns and producing brochures for international shows, including the air shows at Farnborough, Paris and Dubai, and the Travel Loyalty conferences in London and Las Vegas.
