About me

It all started when I won the Royal Society of Arts competition in 2012 with my 'Re-design of the National Rail Train Ticket'. Since then I have gone on to rebrand 20+ companies around the world, design interiors, ground services, products and user interfaces for United Airlines, Hainan Airlines, South African Airlines, S7 Airlines, LATAM, Turkish Airlines, Air France. More recently, I have been focusing on Digital Design including; websites, branding, UI/UX and digital content.

9ine Consulting

Initially, what started out as vastly improving the day to day quality of visual content online and in documents, it became clear that a complete rebrand was needed. Alongside my daily tasks of website updates, video editing, social media and infographics etc. I suggested and undertook a complete rebrand for the company. I produced an exciting colour palette and modern logo options, and implemented a strategy for the release of new branding and content across all touch-points.

Raine & Co.

Raine & Co. was in much need of a fresh new look when they approached me. They had no online presence and the logo was 30 years old. Whilst researching the chartered surveyors market, I realised it was overrun by masculine brands trying to overpower each other. The brief was to give Raine & Co. a softer, more personable feel with a luxurious colour palette.

Our brief was to develop the Hainan Airlines brand from a chinese airline with high quality customer service with a small global presence to a cohesive and modern international brand with a 5 star best in class experience.

Volunteer Here

After volunteering to help the refugees in Calais I decided to make it easier to sign up to. Much like the charities in Calais all work together, I combined access to all their information from the same App. With one sign-in registration volunteers can sign up to help as many charities as they choose. This project was a great learning tool to find out what could be achieved using Adobe XD for the first time.
