Icreating dynamic and engaging digital work. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.
I work full time as a freelance digital designer from my home office, based in Newcastle.
Previously I have worked at WCRS, London. Clients included; Santander, Sky Movies, Radox, Andrex and the MOD. I have also freelanced in Brighton and London creating websites, mobile, Facebook apps and Flash animations.
I received my Master of Arts in Creative Digital Media from Teesside University and have gone on to complete further training in Photography, Illustration and UX. I enjoy cooking, snowboarding, travel and roller derby.
I worked as lead designer for the Santander mobile websites hub pages and campaign pages. I was responsible for the creating the look and feel and all of the design assets and creating the brand guidelines document. I worked closely with the dev team to ensure that the design worked well on an iPhone resolution, with a touch screen interface.
The 'Contact us' page displays all of the contact numbers for Santander. As this is a mobile site, people can call directly from the user interface by selecting the red phone number buttons. Care was taken to ensure that the buttons would be easy to press and that all of the body copy was readable.
The 'Offers' page will display any current product offers that Santander are running. They will always appear in individual panels and once selected will go to the product or offer landing page.
This is an example of a product landing page, in this case mortgages. There are certain design rules that all of the landing pages will follow, including: page title, leading campaign imagery and a call us button must appear above the iPhone fold.
The brief was to produce an eye-catching illustrated poster for Transport for London (FTL), with a nod to traditional British humour. This was a concept for a pitch.
A second version of the poster, with simpler graphics and colour pallet.
The aim was to create a Facebook app for o2, where users could vote on and submit National Treasures. I art directed, illustrated and produced all of the design work for this project.
This design shows the landing page for users who have already 'liked' the app.
This is the home page of the app, where users can vote on National Treasures.
Tell us a National Treasure page. This is where uses can submit their own treasure.
The leaderboard page.
The aim of the website is to promote innovative technologies for liveable cities. The brief was to create a unique and interactive design that would display all of the different content types, including video clips, documents, audio and images. To solve this I created a dynamic hero panel that users could interact with and browse the content. There was also more traditional navigation system that visitors could use.
Hero panel exploration, users can filter the content by functionality on the top left.
Users can preview content in the hero panel, here a video clip is displayed.
This design shows a full page article in the Blog. Functionality on the right hand side allows users to explore similar or popular articles.
Users could play the 'Command a Commando' Facebook app, where they lead a troop of real Royal Marines in an interactive challenge to see if they had the state of mind to become a Commando.

This was microsite for the C4 drama The Promise. Users could come to the site and see what people were saying about the program on Twitter, by using the timeline at the top of the page, viewing the constellation chart and reading the tweets on the right-hand side.
Users could also drill down into the constellation, to see words within certain topics. Users could also use the timeline at the top to see what was being talked about during various episodes, and this would update the chart and tweets in real-time.

Re-design the Virgin Pioneers home page with new layout and functionality.
This is a concept for a fun Facebook app where you can upload of a photo of yourself and become one of the Inbetweeners. It also encourages you to recruit your friends and share the app.
I worked as lead designer for the Radox Spa Facebook app. The concept was to create a spa experience online, where users could listen to specially created relaxing music, enter a competition and find out more about the new Spa product range. The app has been extremely successful, generating over 100,000 likes for Radox.
The home page design takes creative elements from the Radox Spa packaging, such as the swirls and drip icon. The lush background imagery is also used throughout the app.
The Spa Pack Selector asked users questions to determine what products would suit them best. They were then given the chance to download a specially tailored spa pack of goodies.
The competition page gives users the chance to win an 'ultimate spa kit.'
The products section of the site allows customers to browse the full range of Radox Spa products as well as listen to the relaxing music tracks.
The aim of this microsite was to allow people to contact their local MP regarding the ban on the Hunting Act, and to see how various MPs have responded by using the interactive Google Map. It also pulled in Tweets, and encouraged people to voice their views.
The aim was to design an email that would encourage users to enter a competition and generate content for the site. The style has to complement the existing brand, but have impact as being a special, one off campaign.
