I’m a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator living in New Zealand. I'm a self professed geek when it comes to film and video games, which is where a lot of my inspiration comes from.
For as long as I remember, growing up I have always had some form of interest in art and design. I think it really kicked off when I took Art & Design class in my last year of high school. That is where I learned a lot about the Adobe programs and discovered a passion for it. Graphic design is my favourite field of the creative industry, along side film and video-games. I get a lot of inspiration from this industry and couldn't see myself not contributing to it. I am attracted to simplicity, minimal aesthetic and monochromatic colours. It's something I have developed an eye for and is something that I think ends up as one of my defining styles and my go-to approach for problem solving. My persistent love for creating pop culture poster art has helped create an identity for myself and has further payed off as a freelance designer.
