01 About

Hi, I'm Will

A highly experienced Digital Designer with expertise in Web & UI/UX Design. I connect audiences through beautiful visual design, engaging brand identity and deliver strategic design solutions enhancing user experiences.

Most recently, I’ve been working full-time with a Social Media Advertising and Marketing agency, where I advanced from a senior design position to the role of Senior Art Director. My experience and skillsets helped make a huge impact innovating and establishing design and branding standards, across all creative departments.

Originally from the UK, I relocated to Canada in 2019 and when I’m not pushing pixels, you’ll find me exploring the beautiful Nova Scotia countryside while fiercely following Premier League football. ⚽
