hello.

I'm a designer, typographer, illustrator, dancer and all round creative. I love collaborating with clients to create designs that are dynamic and engaging. I believe that good design isn't about settling, it's about pushing the concept.. The best solution tends to lie just outside your comfort zone.

I'm a former Senior Designer at Smack Bang Designs with a Bachelor of design from Swinburne/Billy Blue and over eight years industry experience. I'm an absolute type nerd and a stickler for spacing and details.. there's also the small matter of my undying love for plants and crochet dresses. I'm currently freelancing on a range of projects including branding, packaging and website design.

I am... a perfectionist. The token studio redhead. Likely to follow you down the street so I can love your dog.

I am not... beige. Good at telling jokes (I get lost well before the punch line). Very smooth.
