Following graduation from London Guildhall University, I was employed as a trainee for small design company, Art Associates. I then worked as a freelance Mac operator/artworker for a few months before joining Kingsway Advertising in London as a junior designer. Working for 8 years at Kingsway, I became senior designer. Clients included large NHS Trusts, Local Government and Universities as well as commercial companies such as Body Shop, Lotus and Diesel and while I worked there the company experienced very significant growth from around £1 million – £35 million turnover.
Working primarily on design of press adverts, recruitment materials and property marketing brochures, I also pioneered the use of digital cameras in the company. During latter years at Kingsway (now part of the Tribal Group), I trained in website design and became the company webmaster. I left Kingsway in 2003 to become a freelance designer. Since then I have worked for a wide variety of clients from multi-nationals to individuals.
