Senior Designer at McCann Enterprise
London, United Kingdom
London, United Kingdom
I'm a London based graphic designer with a particular focus on font design and illustration. Those two come together in hand lettering, which is one of my specialties. You might have come across my work when buying a can of Relentless Energy – I've designed their new typeface. I've also designed graphics for one of the YUBZ artist series handsets. If you're going to MediaCity in Manchester, have a look at the typographic walls in the new Booth's flagship store which I've designed (AD:Debrah Smith, Smith & Village) Please feel free to contact me.

My task was to finalise the new logo which required my typedesign skills. Furthermore I had to design a European logo equivalent for an existing Arabic sports channel logo.
The task was to design an intranet web site for this investment bank. The previously used intranet interface was Microsoft Sharepoint. The new intranet site consists of five colour coded sections with an editable info section. For this I've designed several icons.
The main goal achieved was to give easier and faster access to the relevant sections of the existing intranet.
