Factotum /fakˈtəʊtəm/ n. 1. man of all work. 2. jack of all trades.
HELLO, MY NAME IS...
I am a graphic designer, illustrator and podcaster from the south east of the United Kingdom.
My skill set is broad and I welcome any challenge that is thrown at me. With a particular view that I will never stop learning my current focus is on developing my skill base to cover any project. I have a keen interest in creating for print as well as digital mediums and have worked on projects ranging from animation to publications to websites and everything in between.
Any spare time I have to work on side projects to further my skills so that I can apply these to real projects. One such project see’s me hosting The Design Jones, a podcast where I interview creatives from the UK in order to showcase their stories and hopefully make the industry that bit better.
Currently my day job is as a full-time designer at Playne Design in Hastings in the UK. Here I get to work on a huge variety of work across physical and digital mediums for a varied client base that includes charities, arts organisations, councils and more.
Although young in the industry I am privileged to say that I have had some great working experience.

Through my work I have been able to get up in front of people to tell my story and lessons i’ve learnt. This is something I would love to continue and do more of in the near future.
