I started my career at AKQA and have been there since 2008. I've worked my way up from intern to junior, from designer to senior. I have now been a lead designer on Yell, Sainsbury's, and for the past year, the Volkswagen Global account.

My main responsibilities for Volkswagen involve leading a design team on the global car configurator project, which is designed on a flexible and fully HTML5 experience and platform. I've also had the chance to shape the future vision of Volkswagen and AKQA's digital strategy; planning improvements to the full life cycle of a VW customer.

I have had the benefit of an experimental creative and UX partnership working hand in hand with a talented User Experience Architect as my partner for the last year. This has improved my digital concepting and expanded my creative thought process by providing a keen insight into the way good UX is planned and implemented.

Previously I worked full time on Sainsbury's and then Yell accounts. For Sainsbury's I was lead designer on several large site builds and campaign sites, I played a part in creating their new online ecommerce platform, and I helped define email design and strategy.

Throughout my career I’ve had the pleasure to have worked on numerous pitches for both new business and incumbents, helping to win work from Volkswagen, NatWest, Xbox, Yell, Sainsbury's and Sainsbury's Finance.

I have mentored several talented young designers; helping to improve their skills during their transition from student to professional or from small agency to large. I really enjoy teaching skills and techniques and seeing the people I mentor flourish into capable and independent professionals in their own right. Read Less
