About me

I'm a Freelance Graphic Designer based in Japan. I have recently relocated from London where I worked for two content marketing specialist agencies. I have plenty of experience in designing for print; I’ve redesigned several publications and created event lateral. I’ve designed responsive email marketing from scratch and also upped social media audience for National Geographic Traveller magazine.
In my freelance work I have designed websites for a number of clients using Wordpress templates.
I am currently looking to branch out and create contacts within the industry, it would be great to talk with you about the possibility of collaborating on a freelance basis.
