I created a distinct visual language for McAfee Labs apart from their parent brand and translated their typical PDFs into an interactive page of graphs and videos.
McAfee commissioned me to write, design and develop an educational visual essay on an aspect of their company. I elected to write about quantum computers and the threat they pose to encryption.
I designed and developed a digital timeline that charts the history of futuristic clothing in media and art.
A fashion editorial I designed and developed on how the sea has shaped the way we dress today.

I was a freelance designer and developer. I created work for tech companies like Google, font foundries like Tiro and universities like Plymouth College of Art. I also had a couple of my websites exhibited at the Tate Modern.
I was on the Growth team at Compound. My domain focused on customer attraction and conversion. A broad range that encompassed marketing, product design and branding. Some example projects were improving onboarding flow, creating educational essays, and designing public-facing tools.
I taught “Designing for Screens”, a 20-person university course for interaction design students where they learned to design and develop websites.
