A year ago, I eventually took the opportunity to go travelling for a couple of months, and had an overwhelming adventure. I covered both North and South islands of New Zealand, the East Coast of Australia, and Northern Territory; and on the way home spent a manic 2 days trying to cover as much of Singapore as humanly possible.

Work and play, I always have my 'creative hat' on, and naturally looking for new design challenges. Whether it's studying the menu at my favourite resturant, stopping in the street to take in the shape and colour of architecture, or studying the form of flowers in a field, I'm constantly looking at the world from an alternative angle.

A big passion of mine is typography. I love words and letters! Logo design is one of my favourite things. Reflecting a theme or industry through the shape, colour and style of lettering is an interesting challenge. When a client comes to me with the need for a new brand, or brand update, it's a project I usually jump at.

In my spare time I usually have a camera in my hand. I mainly like to take photos of wildlife, nature and landscapes. Nature is all around us, and forever evolving, moving, and changing with the seasons. This is why it interests me so much.

When it comes to everyday design projects, I can turn my hand to almost anything. I have lots of experience in both print and web design (+ UX, UI); as well as branding, copyrighting, conceptual event design, marketing and advertising. This includes logos, stationery, brochures, websites, html emails, animated flash imagery, event stands, promotional items.... and much more.
