About MeI graduated in 2007 from the University of Central England with a first class degree in BA (Hons) Visual Communication. During my first two years at university I studied various aspects of Graphic Design from branding to editorial design. As a creative, yet logical thinker my final year was spent specialising in Information Design and Wayfinding. For the past 9 years I have been working as a Wayfinding Designer/Information Planner in London.
