Freelance Motion Graphic Designer - | 0413 828 628

I'm an experienced Graphic Designer that cares about the work I produce. Realising ideas into real life creative answers is what I do best and although I am primarily focused on digital I'm also all over print and always keep the core design principals at the heart of any project. Having been the sole designer with an agency that handles clients both big and small means I got the fantastic opportunity to deliver creative solutions to a broad range of channels from online to TV, events and product launches to sales conferences and corporate videos.
