I’m a Designer/Art Director based in Manchester, UK. I have over 17 years of agency and in-house experience leading strategic branding projects and creative campaigns for some of the world’s biggest lifestyle brands.
I’m also the founder and Creative Director of Studio Zenko, a brand and creative consultancy helping good people doing good things make a start, make a statement or make a change for the better.
How I work:
I work with brands and agencies on a freelance and consultancy level across branding, design, art direction, motion and creative strategy. The breadth of my 17 years of hands-on experience means I can take projects from strategy and creative concept through to production and implementation. Or just part of that process if that’s all that’s required. I can deliver projects independently, work alongside existing in-house or agency teams, or put together hand-picked teams of collaborators to produce the best results for the project at hand.
As one of the few trans leaders in my industry, I'm also passionate about diversity and inclusion and I support various organisations in a mentoring capacity. As part of the One Million Mentors programme and Uprising's 'Stand out' scheme, I work with university design students to help them navigate the transition from education to industry, and with young people from LGBTQ+, disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds, helping them to bridge existing social barriers and realise glass ceilings are there to be broken.
