Brand guardian for 3 major clients

A strong understanding of how digital projects are created and the ability to work closely with developers to achieve the best possible outcome is essential in my role. Knowledge of the capabilities of HTML & CSS allows me to push ideas onto developers and creatives and also allows me to work within the boundaries of what is possible in build.

I am brand guardian for 3 major agency clients which means I must create, oversee and sign off the work produced for these brands, by myself and other designers, in the agency to make sure they meet the normal high standards and adhere to brand guidelines. Being trusted to look after these clients constantly requires me to take the lead on projects and manage jobs from start to finish. This includes live briefs and creating work for pitches, which I am regularly involved in.
