Working across all aspects of the creative sphere for over 25 years, 2020 was a maelstrom of year for me, as for everyone, so I decided it was time to set up Twelve22. My Portfolio site to support the search for freelance work, projects, permanent creative contracts and to promote my work and experiences to date.
Currently searching for permanent Designer and Artworker creative roles I can also work on a project by project basis and even assist on a part-time hourly basis to cover busy periods, staff leave etc.
I have worked with a large variety of clients over the years from small independents, national and local charities to large multi-nationals consistently providing quality, cost effective creative often within tight deadlines and to a range of budgetary needs.
A gradute of the University of Westminster with a BA Hons in Graphic Information Design, I freelanced in London for a short period and then joined United News Group running one of their local design studios. I then moved to Wickes Building Supplies in their marketing and creative department as part of their Head Office Point of Sale and specialist promotion team.
I then moved to Surrey and worked for many years at GEM Associates (now HME limited) a pharmaceutical media company based in Surrey. I lead their small creative department servicing the production and creative needs of local and global pharmaceutical clients. Working with in house design and sales teams for clients such as Astra Zeneca, GSK, Novartis, Pfizer & Takeda on diverse projects from repurposing print ad campaigns, through medical congress and event exhibition graphics to App interfaces. Alongside this I maintained the HME brand and promotion campaigns via social media channels and Mailchimp, delivering presentations newsletters and all asects of marketing for HME and their other businesses.
Just ask, I hate to say no!
