Beautifully effective design

I am a digital designer, creative director, and design leader who has worked with well-known brands, government organisations, start-ups and multi-national companies:

I work on digital editorial and product designs, focusing on the creative execution of a brand strategy, mobile and responsive design and more. I join teams for early sprints and then provide ongoing creative direction and support.

My portfolio expresses my belief that successful digital design should convey personality, be a reflection of beliefs, and have a soul.


Greenpeace is focussed on environmental protection issues in Poland. I worked with them to redesign someone’s journey from their important campaign pages to donating to the organisation. I developed a set of new campaign page designs that are distinctive yet within the brand guidelines set by Greenpeace worldwide. I also optimised their donation process to maximise conversion opportunities and created templates and a style guide to enable the team in Poland to easily develop pages in the future.  — Read more


SunLife is a house-hold name in the UK, providing insurance and financial services to the over 50s. We worked together to improve consistency and reduce friction in the visual execution of their brand across multiple channels. I achieved this by developing the SunWise design system and style guide and designing exemplary email marketing and website templates. The outcome included assets now more closely aligned to their brand, better communication, and less time spent on approvals and revisions.  — Read more
