Everything is designed. Few things are designed well.

ABOUT

Introduction

I'm a graphic designer based in Manchester, UK. Take a look at my website and see what I’ve done for others. If you would like to work with me or just say hi – please feel free to drop me an email or find me on any of the usual social networks (links at the bottom).

Experience

I've been milling around in the design industry for about 16 years now from the mean streets of the shop floor to well air conditioned rooms of the corporate world. I have proven experience in a wide range of sectors and have collaborated with a lot of skilled and creative individuals. My work to date has involved a range of clients from creative entrepreneurs, musicians and local charities.

Areas of Design

My areas of design are: branding, logo design, business cards, letterheads, compliment slips, flyers, posters, leaflets, menus, brochures, booklets, invitations, programs, signs, websites, HTML emails, digital design, PDF brochure design, motion graphics, 3D artwork plus whatever else comes my way.

My Approach

My design is based on a mutual love for all things creative and being enthusiastic about all my work. I have a deliberately simple approach to graphic design in which there is a constant process of reduction in order to find the honesty, the purity, the real story to tell. I have a visibly consistent style that translates into a clear and communicative visual language with a modernist bias towards type and image.
