Orange Bus LtdFebruary 2012 - February 2014

I designed websites, user interfaces and brand identities. I've got years of experience collaborating with UX designers and front- and back end developers to ensure that every project gets the same high level of creativity and attention to detail.

I love creating brands. A brand isn't just a logo - it's much more than that. A brand is a promise that a company makes to it's customers, it's staff, it's stakeholders. It says "This is what we stand for, and we will prove it every day."

Designing a web site is just one stage in a collaborative process that eventually involves every team at Orange Bus. Staying focused on the primary goals of a site so it serves it's purpose is the real trick. Working at Orange Bus, I get to test myself on every project, and it's why I enjoy the work so much.
