So... Who Am I?

I'm an independent graphic designer and web designer based in Bridgnorth, Shropshire with 18+ years of professional experience, working for businesses and individuals throughout the Midlands (Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester) and Shropshire (Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Telford & Shrewsbury), London and beyond.

 

I grew up with crayons, felt-tip pens and colouring books and have always had a natural artistic talent for understanding and creating anything that requires a creative approach.

 

My skillset has been constantly tested and developed throughout my whole career together with learning about how businesses work which in turn gives me a better understanding of what a client wants and what a client needs and not just be a designer who follows a given brief. I like to know about the nuts and bolts which helps me to create effective, functional design that works.

 

Having been at the forefront of running a studio/agency, I get asked by a lot people "why should I work with you and not an agency". Simple answer, "Being a studio/agency doesn't mean you are good or even better than any other designer out there". The only real difference is cost. However, lower costs do not mean low quality output, not from me or from any of my colleagues/collaborations.

 

I always aim to build a solid, transparent relationship with everyone who I work with and having direct communication (client and designer/developer) is the key to a fun, productive and successful outcome for all.

 

Throughout my whole working career I have been very lucky and fortunate to work for global companies like Sony / Codemasters, Virgin, Monster, Budweiser, Goodyear and Shell, together with meeting and working with some very successful and influential people like Richard Branson, Neville Brody, ATTIK and Erik Spiekermann. All of which have given me real world knowledge and experience, insight and foresight into being a strong contender within a very competitive industry.
