I am a senior graphic designer. I have worked in the Medical Illustration Department at Bradford since 1994.
I gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical illustration from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2003, and a Higher National Diploma in Visual Communication/Graphic Design from Batley Art College in 1988. I’ve also completed creative writing courses with the Open University and attend regular training courses, seminars and workshops to help keep my skills up-to-date.
I specialise in patient information, health promotion, teaching support and corporate communication. I am also responsible for maintaining the departmental Apple Mac computer systems and managing our graphics archive. In recent years I’ve been involved in health literacy projects and the research and development of user-friendly, responsive web resources.
I like to use simple imagery, clear typography and easy to navigate, functional layouts. My work has won national awards from the British Medical Association and Institute of Medical Illustrators. Two of my design projects were highly commended at the 2016 British Medical Association book competition with my Delirium booklet going on to win first prize.
Outside of work I like to play football and I’m currently living the dream supporting Huddersfield Town in the Premier League. I also like spending time with my family and enjoy keeping fit.
