I’m an illustrator, creative and advertiser based in London.
When I was a child I refused to speak. I don’t know why but, according to my family, I used drawing as an alternative (odd) means of communication. This has resulted in me holding my pen in a ‘majorly innovative’ (weird) way. Hence, the life of a creative was destined.
The rebellion against the status quo developed through the school years. At the back of the classroom you could often spot me drawing caricatures of teachers and fellow classmates … or overhear a scolding outside the vice headmaster’s office for when I uploaded them online to MySpace.
Therefore, it only made sense (after I found my voice) that I became not only a freelance illustrator but also a manager in the world of advertising. All in the hopes of reaching my dream of being an art director.
CREATIVE AGENCY LIFE
Have lead many social-first creative campaigns on host of platforms with varying formats – Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok & Quibi (are there any others?).
Strengths lie in idea generation sessions, constructing and presenting concept proposals to client and brief writing for global creator networks.
Work closely with the motion graphic designers providing art direction and copywriting to deliver effective content at scale.
Clients personally worked with in this sector include Amex, Pepsi, Sainsbury’s Bank, Nationwide, Warner Brother’s Games, Activision, Mars Crave, Google, Calm, L’Oreal and NowTV.
MARKETING AGENCY LIFE
I’ve been lucky to work for some great clients at various media agencies for over 5 years from strategising media campaigns for YouTube and Google Display. Clients include Netflix, Google, B&Q, BrewDog, Wilkinson Sword, Volvic and Evian to name a few.
I was grateful to be asked to write an article for Google on a Volvic YouTube campaign I was involved in strategising over the summer. Have a read HERE.
My passion projects tend to circumvent around travel sketching across the globe, designing artwork for musicians I love and running drink and draw meet up groups. If you’re in the London area, get in touch to get involved!
