I currently lead the Visual Design Department at VMLY&R Sydney & Melbourne, working on clients like Defence Force Recruiting, Vodafone and Rip Curl. Creativity and Connection are the non-negotiable themes of our agency, meaning that designers are constantly pushing themselves and collaborating with creatives, strategists, suits and developers to create everything from high-level concepts to eye-catching campaigns to ready-to-ship products. This is what I call design with 360 degree vision.
Prior to VMLY&R I worked at a range of agencies across London and Sydney, including R/GA, Tribal DDB, and BBH. The letters in the names may change but these agencies all place the same emphasis on creativity and beautiful execution for every brief, from digital banners and billboards to brand identity.
At deltatre I was able to indulge my love of sports and think about how we communicate the intangibles of elite-level competition: risk in golf, momentum in football, scores in cricket. My work there included early concepts for the motion system in the Premier League rebrand in 2016.
Over the years I have developed a wide spectrum of skills and experience which I now apply to every project, whether in a hands-on capacity crafting every pixel, or at a leadership level speaking with clients and internal teams to improve their understanding and execution.
