Experience

During my 24 years as a Graphic Designer, Branding Consultant and Production Artist I have worked on hundreds of different brands in various locations around the world.
  • 2012 to current

    LOS ANGELES, USA

    I’ve lived in LA for more than 4 years now, during this time I have completed projects for TeleSign, a global digital security agency, The Sunset Team, a prestigious West Hollywood based real estate agency and packaging for CuttinEdge Lab. Other projects include a website for a Hollywood film editor and brand creation for a European organic food company.
    I also act as Agency of Record for AIGA Los Angeles, responsible for design and production of event assets including social media graphics, emailers and posters.
  • 1996 – 2012

    LONDON, UK

    In addition to freelancing at some of London’s (and the world’s) best design agencies including FutureBrand, Design Bridge, Identica, Pentagram, BEAR, Landor and Interbrand on brands such as Barclays, Ticketmaster, Virgin, Lexus, McDonalds, Foxtons and AkzoNobel.
    I also worked with my own clients including a Dubai based automotive company specialising in roadside assistance.
  • 1995 – 1996

    ROME, ITALY

    I was not here for very long, not that I don’t love Rome. But during my time I completed work for some lovely boutique brands in addition to freelancing at the global advertising powerhouse, DMB&B on some prestigious Italian fashion labels.
  • 1992 – 1995

    DUBAI, UAE

    I spent most of my time in Dubai working at DMB&B, which at the time was the biggest advertising company in the world. I was responsible for visualization and retouching for clients including GMC, Mars and Philips.
    My other role was that of a production artist, tasked with the creation of multilingual adverts that were published across the Gulf.
  • 1989 – 1992

    STAFFORDSHIRE, UK

    My home town, well county to be precise. I finished my diploma in Graphic Design in 1992 and was offered a job by a design agency in Dubai so I decided to jump on a plane and in at the deep end. The rest as they say, is history.

Brand building

MORE THAN A LOGO

——————

I always develop a brand with the bigger picture in mind as you never quite know how customers will first discover your brand. It may be through your website, business card or your stand at an exhibition, so it’s imperative they tie together and are of similar high quality.
The ability to consider other brand elements during design and production, even if I am not tasked with doing them, ultimately helps to create a more cohesive brand.
My extensive experience means I’m able to design, implement and produce just about any item you require. From stationery, printed collateral, adverts and brand guidelines to packaging, office branding, exhibition stands, websites and your social media presence.
