Originally from Scotland, I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with an honours degree in design and began my career with Freight, one of Scotland's leading creative design and marketing agencies, where I progressed to Senior Graphic Designer. I now work at Bureau Blank in Manhattan, a fantastic, multi-disciplinary design agency driven by three key values: creativity, process and service. As part of a small team in each position I've had the opportunity to develop a wide range of design skills and experience every stage of the process from initial concept to producing finished artwork.

I believe my strengths lie in conceptual thought, typography and identity development. I've always contributed original illustrations too and particularly enjoy finding complementary combinations between design and illustration. Read Less
