My role at 2Fluid Creative was to create for both graphic and digital design.

Soundcontrol was the UK’s largest music retailer. It was my job to create all the marketing materials for this UK wide chain. I worked alone and was responsible for the design of their bimonthly magazine, advertising, point-of-sale and other marketing collateral for their 12 stores across the UK.

Redwing Design
Designer

A small agency, Redwing gave me crucial, hands on print experience. Situated in the same building as it’s sister company, a litho printer, I was able to learn how to make film and plates as well as see my jobs being printed on the press. This insight into the print industry provided me with a valuable understanding of the process of print which many designers are unable to receive.
