I have recently left my position as Art Director for a well placed online fashion site to work freelance in my home country of New Zealand.
In my previous position I developed the visual brand, creating house style guidelines and translating across all medias... advertising, marketing, web, print, blogs, social media, corporate, pr presentations, logos and email communications. My key achievements included a full site redesign.
I have worked on a number of fashion brands and alongside print work from in-store graphics, POS, billboards, press-books, packaging I have art directed campaign shoots, street style photography and on the web side of things redesigned e-commerce websites, micro-sites.
I am interested in continuing to work on fresh, clean, creative web and graphic design but also like to delve into illustration, photography, blogs and more creative design jobs.
