Feb 2016-Present
I joined Christie's auction house as Creative Director, where I support the artistic direction and brand vision for all digital products whilst overseeing auction campaigns for Dubai, Geneva, London and Paris across all media channels and on-site exhibition display.

I currently lead a team of 20 visual designers reponsible for developing Christie’s digital products and day-to-day asset creation for both owned and paid for digital media.

In April 2019 I was appointed Director.

Appointed Design Lead for Tate's visual identity refresh and website re-launch. I appointed and worked with design agency North; leading the initial audit, research, design and digital implementation from an in-house perspective.

Appointed Senior Designer for Tate where I successfully led the visual design of major exhibitions including Damien Hirst (2012) Lichtenstein (2013) and Matisse (2014). In 2014 I was awarded a digital development bursary to help develop new methods of visual communication in digital media, this research led to the current UX improvements being implemented to completion.   

I joined the Whitechapel Gallery becoming their first permanent designer working with Spin and Holmes-Wood to re-brand the Gallery and launch the current website. In 2010 I was appointed Design Manager helping to establish the The London Art Book Fair and a design internship scheme.

I interned for Johnson Banks, Smith & Milton and worked for Adventis Goup and Sterling Solutions as Designer, helping develop visual identities in the charity (Shelter), property (Savills) and financial (Natwest) sectors.

I studied at Kingston where I focused on visual memory processes, I continue to explore the theme of personal memory made public via graphics and photography.
