I’m a multi-discipline freelance graphic designer based in Bristol with experience both agency side and client side, working with a broad range of organisations around the world.

Whether you are developing an existing brand or just starting up, I work to give you a clear and distinct identity.

This can be achieved using a wide array of creative techniques, informed by research and strategy to ensure that you bridge the gap between your business and your consumer.

Bft Automation
Product brochure design for Bft Automation near Bristol

After years of product brochures and pricelists being sent out to contractors, specifiers and distributors in more than 120 countries, Bft Automation came to the decision that the format they had been using was no longer doing the job.

We worked together to construct sales literature that best represented their product range today to aid in upselling and demonstrating the many uses for their innovative automation systems.
