What I’ve done
A couple of the most significant steps in my career so far:
Katapult Ltd | 2001 – 2008 Founded this design studio and branding agency with friends and fellow students when we left university. I worked as its senior designer creating brands and printed materials for small to medium enterprises, arts organisations and government initiatives in the English East Midlands and the UK.
MyFonts & Monotype | 2010 – 2018 Together with my friend and colleague Jab Middendorp, we ran a couple of monthly newsletters for the font retailer MyFonts. I did graphics, some text, some project management, some editorial and lots of mashing together of code until I found something that worked. I later joined MyFonts/Monotype fulltime for a couple of years, where I moved more towards the marketing and CRM side of email.
In and around these two long term positions, I’ve freelanced as a graphic designer, digital project manager, copywriter and marketing strategist.
I’m currently spending 60-70% of my time supporting two enterprises in their email, CRM and audience engagement activities through email.
