I’ve worked with a lot of nice people and organisations. Helping them to reach out, engage and involve other nice people.
So what kind of work have I done? Well, quite a lot.
From business cards, badges, brand design and brochures, to beautiful reports and big photographic exhibitions. From shareable social media messages to responsive websites. From slick (and confidential) pitch presentations to internal review reports – I’ve done a whole lot of stuff. And then some more.
So I could build a pretty large portfolio site showing off all that great work, but that misses the point: you need to talk to me. I’d rather you tell me what it is that you are interested in doing. Your project is after all something new, and unlike all the other materials. I can then always put some portfolio examples together that will be more relevant to you and your audience.
Though, just to pique your interest, below are some of the wonderful clients that I’ve done work for over the last year or two.
I’ve been working for Annie Lennox’s charity project The Circle for quite a few years now. It’s all about championing women’s right around the world. See: http://www.thecircle.ngo/
I’ve worked on many pitch presentations to help get celebrity and organisational support for campaigns supporting Syrian refugees.
Needles to say that working for the University of Oxford is an amazing experience. From conference materials for Evidence Live to outreach projects such as Uniq, the graphic design work I have been doing is rich and varied.
Sadly, you don’t win all campaigns. Im 2016 I did a fair amount of work for the Stronger IN campaign, as well as for Scientists for EU.
For Consumers International I have done some very interesting social media campaigns, from this antibiotic resistance campaign, road safety in Kenya to demanding better safety standards from car manufacturers around the world.
Go on. Say you can resist this cute doggy shot! Hearing Dogs for Deaf People are doing some amazing work helping people with hearing loss regain their confidence in a word without sound. https://www.hearingdogs.org.uk/
Over the last few years I have worked on many presentation materials to help the White Helmets raise funds, as well as gain an Oscar nomination of the short documentary about their cause. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6073176/
I’ve done my fair share of last minute emergency fundraising adverts and pitches for the Disaster Emergency Committee, with celebrities such as Jamie Oliver and One Direction.
If you do fundraising, no doubt you will have worked on some Red Nose Day materials. In this case the project was about a spoof photo shoot with some rather glam models – and their Red Nose/
Designed a small exhibition for Warwick University to commemorate one of their leading academics, Christopher Zeeman.
Control arms poster I designed to highlight the sad fact that it is easier to import guns than bananas. Which is why it is important to campaign for a global arms trade treaty (ATT) at the UN. Cover of the original Control Arms launch report. Control Arms, now renamed, as the ATT Monitor serves, as a trusted source of information on the implementation of, and compliance to, the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).

I worked for over 11 years working at Oxfam, and have a portfolio brimming with inspirational work. From campaigning, fundraising and supporter recruitment, I’ve done it all. Website: http://www.oxfam.org.uk
I’ve worked on several pieces of work to support women rights campaigners in Afghanistan, from Oxfam to Amnesty International.

One of many pieces of social media campaign materials I have done for Greenpeace over the years. From Save the Arctic to Climate Change campaigns, the work has been rich and varied.
The Greenpeace Arctic Campaign was supported by celebrities like Emma Thompson, for which I did many on-time social media slides while she was up in the arctic.
Countless DM pieces to inspire supporters and raise funds for Oxfam. What a joy to see Oxfam projects in action!
