I love being a designer at Adao and I’m passionate about designing for the best UX experience with everything I create, be that print or digital, I believe in designing with empathy for the viewer, user, and client.
We work with some amazing clients that ask us to work on fantastic projects and, within my role, I work closely with the fab team at Hermes UK and creating exciting campaigns, event marketing and developing digital strategies.
Becoming a designer has been a dream come true, I was lucky enough to have family that, even though they didn’t quite understand what I’d end up doing, supported me to chase my dream.
I have worked in Marketing Agencies since Graduating Teesside University, working with large corporations and small start-ups. I’ve been blessed to work on some amazing campaigns, new products, and creative website projects.
Whilst I was ‘chasing the dream’ dueing college and Uni, I trained as a Royal Navy Reservist at HMS Calliope in Newcastle. It was a brutal but wonderful experience and a huge part of my life. I met people from all sorts of backgrounds, it was both physically and mentally exhilarating and I got to travel all over the UK and overseas for various training exercises.
On the weekend I love being outdoors, rain or shine with my gorgeous Cockador puppy called Piper @piperthecockador. She is my absolute world and a great companion.
I enjoy running in the summer and skiing in the winter to stay fit. I love spending time with my family, most of them are now living in Australia so I try to get over as often as I can…. (Im off on a lil trip next week! Eek). Yes I am a Neighbours fan.
