Quote marks“Since leaving RGU I have been working
as a freelance designer in London with
within FITCH, Bite, DEEP & OPX.

This has enabled me to meet and work with a variety of clients including Hasbro and Acer and I have worked on a global roll out campaign for Adidas. These opportunities have allowed me to build on my portfolio that I developed throughout my time in Gray’s and has rewarded me with retainer clients like Ministry of Sound, Sotheby’s, and the Sub Club in Glasgow”.
