CREATIVE PRINT & MEDIA ART DIRECTOR/DESIGNER Magazines to Adverts to T- shirts to logos to videos... While historically a consumer print specialist, I am able to tackle anything from a new corporate identity to brochures, catalogues, business cards and beyond.

While primarily consumer print media, my experience has also included more diverse areas of design from adverts to T- shirts, logos to videos.

I've held a string of top design positions at Emap/Bauer publishing, including Art Editor of Motorcycle News, RiDE magazine, Classic Bike magazine, Bike magazine and Art Director of Outdoor Fitness magazine during my 14 years with the company. For the last two years I have been self-employed as a freelance graphic designer.

During my time at Emap/Bauer I successfully relaunched MCN, Classic Bike, RiDE and Bike, worked on the prelaunch of Practical Sportsbike magazine and launched Outdoor Fitness magazine as a new brand.

My roles have always involved a high level of planning, creative thinking, photo direction and staff management, all of which I find immensely satisfying. I'm able to work well in a team but I'm also self motivated and able to run solo on a project to deadlines.
