About me

I’m a designer from New Zealand currently living and loving life in London. I work full time as a web and graphic designer at a London startup and I’m slightly addicted to side projects. Along with running a little t-shirt company, Liner Note Kids, I spend a lot of my spare time creating videos for my YouTube channel CharliMarieTV. I also run a design podcast called Design Life with my good friend Femke.

I’m passionate about music and designing merchandise and album art for bands that their fans will love and want to treasure forever. If you’d like to hire me for a project of your own, get in touch.

Disclaimer

From time to time companies might send me products to try out in the hopes I might like them enough to talk about them on my blog or YouTube channel. If this happens, you’ll always get my honest opinion and be told that I didn’t spend my own money on it. I rarely take on sponsored work (that’s where a brand pays you to write a blog post or make a video inspired by them or their product) but when I do it’ll only be because I had a good idea that fit the brief and I thought you’d like to hear about it. I make sure I always have complete creative control and I’d never write or say something I don’t believe in so rest assured, the opinions you hear from me are always 100% honest no matter if the content is sponsored or not. We cool?
