Hello, are you looking for a graphic designer?

I have over 10 years experience, and have worked for companies in Auckland, London and Melbourne.

I am based in New Zealand with a laptop, internet connection and the ability to design for clients based anywhere in the world. Living in a caravan, I am a business on wheels and can come to you.

I am confident that I can either design the campaign you require or point you in the right direction. I have an overview of my portfolio below, with examples of posters, booklets, flyers, websites, emails, direct mail, event design, videos, online banners and more.

I have worked in small design agencies, in large advertising agencies and in-house in multiple businesses from retail travel to mortgage aggregator.

If you are a small or large business, I’d love to have a chat.
