I'm a senior art director happiest with a copywriter, a layout pad and a pen but my skillset is fairly broad. I guess you’d call me a digital art director, able to visualise my ideas quickly using a mac, or at a bit of a slower pace if I'm designing something really beautiful. I enjoy writing headlines, too. I can do most things required to deliver a strategically thought-out campaign from concept all the way through to design, but like most creatives, my favourite bit is the concept stage, and everything I do must stem from an exceptional single-minded idea.
What my ECDs usually like about me is that I’m able to work with practically anyone, and also completely trusted to deliver jobs on my own.
I've worked on everything from TV to social to POS. My 15+ year career has been spent at BBH and McCann plus a few years freelancing at numerous agencies in London. I'm currently working remotely from various locations globally, alongside running Noama, my online art store.
Everyone I work with usually says I'm approachable, confident, fun and I get 'lovely' a lot. I enjoy mentoring junior creatives. Not a fan of long meetings. Love a loose-leaf tea and a new pen.
