Work Experience

Creed Design

Graphic/Interior Designer

During my time at Creed, I worked closely with one of the leading hospitality brands in the UK, Pizza Express. Every restaurant environment was unique and inspired by the local area. My role was to create the bespoke wallpapers, artwork prints, screens and pendants for new builds and refurbishments.
For over 2 and a half years I provided artwork for over 65 restaurants, including key sites in Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh and a flag ship restaurant near Leicester Square.

I also worked closely with our in-house design team to create 3D models and visualisations for some of Creed's other clients, Frankie & Benny's and Wagamama. Other projects consisted of branding and design work for smaller independent businesses.  

An integral part of my role was to help support the marketing and update of Creed's portfolio, this included photography of finished projects, website updates, promotional brochures and stationery design.

The Co-operative

Graphic Designer

My work at The Co-operative consisted of designing brochures, marketing material, advertising and POS for the various areas of the business.

As one of the more senior members of the team I played an integral part in the everyday functions of the design studio individually or as part of a team.

The majority of my later work consisted of annual reports and presentations for the board of directors. I also worked closely with senior management in developing a number of high profile marketing campaigns across the business.
