I'm a freelance graphic designer specialising in brand identities, custom logos, hand lettering and type design.

After 12 years working as a graphic designer specialising in logos and brand identity, I felt I needed to break away from the constraints of the computer. Picking up a pen and paper, I moved towards a more illustrative style and developed a genuine passion for traditional hand lettering and brush script. After practicing the craft for a few years, I began to see how hand lettering and custom logos could really enhance design. Suddenly my work felt alive and had soul!
