I'm an art director and graphic designer who's worked in a variety of advertising, design and marketing agencies for over 25 years. I've worked in many sectors including; healthcare, technology, IT, finance, travel and automotive. I’m as happy coming up with the "big idea’" as I am getting my hands dirty and seeing the work through to completion. I also have a great copywriter I work regularly with if needed.
