Design is a battlefield

I’ve been designing for print and digital media for over ten years, have seen the field change and adapted with it. Before earning my stripes in the digital arena, I was deployed to animation and graphic design campaigns.

I understand that design atmosphere, and scoping to meet the needs of both the client while considering the end user, will combine to create memorable and successful projects.

Currently I am working in a Senior Visual Designer role for Air New Zealand in Auckland, New Zealand within the User Experience team.

My role encompasses consultancy with stakeholders, support to development teams, UI design and UX consideration across multi-platform applications and digital properties.
