Me

I’m a multidisciplinary designer & illustrator, specialising in ideas lead design, which is drawn from a unique, joyful, often story-oriented viewpoint. My enthusiasm and complete commitment to the creative industry is built on 6 years worth of art & design education, where I explored and practised several disciplines that are highly applicable for the exciting client projects I’m involved in on daily basis. I'm currently on the lookout for a full time position within the design/ advertising industry.

 

Hey, hi, hello, I’m John, a multidisciplinary creative

The experience I have gained predominately as a graphic designer within branding, print and digital agencies has made me realise that I love the communications process as a whole and get just as much joy coming up with ideas and insights, imagining the best approach/ strategy for the project through questioning and discussions, as I do thinking about the art direction and details for the finished project. 

In short, I wish I could create each project from start to finish, handling the photography, creating the soundtrack; everything! Realistically, within an agency environment, I get to be part of a talented team to work alongside and bring all these skills together to curate and offer my knowledge on projects when necessary, which is truly exciting.
