I’m a multidisciplinary designer with skills in graphic design, illustration, web design, art direction, animation and video editing.
During my career of more than 17 years, I have worked in a range of environments: advertising agencies, design studios, government and most recently corporate. I have experience in liaising with clients, stakeholders, external suppliers and providing support and training to other designers. I am able to convert concepts to finished product within tight deadlines and budget. I am thorough, accurate and have impeccable attention to detail. I have extensive knowledge in preparing artwork for print, colour and stock selection and press-checking print projects.
I have worked on New Zealand tourism brands such as Shotover Jet, Huka Jet, Rainbow Springs and Milford Sound Red Boat Cruises. I have also created artwork for Jeep and Chrysler, as well as direct mail campaigns for the Starship Foundation in Auckland. At Trade and Investment Queensland (Queensland Government), I developed design concepts and collateral for Queensland Education and Training International (QETI) Awards and Export Awards. I was a go-to person for proposal and creative report design at Aurizon.
My current role at QinetiQ Australia is varied and incorporates almost every design discipline: from brochure design to landing page design, internal communications graphics to external advertising, events collateral (stand design, digital brochures, print items, merchandise etc.) to online recruitment campaigns and videos. I am also the company’s brand custodian and provide advice on logo usage, photography, videography, graphics, layout and templates. I have also been freelancing on and off for a few years developing illustrations and corporate identities for clients.
I love learning and I’m always looking at new ways of developing new skills; whether it’s through lynda.com, YouTube or Google, or through formal training. In 2017 I obtained a Diploma in Digital Media Design through Billy Blue College of Design in Brisbane.
