About me
I’ve spent over 10 years communicating ideas, stories and emotion for organisations in London, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Milan, Sydney, Madrid, Cairo, Mumbai, Taiwan and Sao Paulo. As a designer and a manager, I would describe myself as an empath. Fundamentally, my job is to listen. Quality and format(s) of output fall into place very smoothly, when this is done well. Because of this understanding, my experience has led me to visually communicate in a variety of ways. Brand identity and creative strategy are areas that seem to be the most impactful, the former of which, I have been lucky enough to win an award or two. I have personally worked with a number of large consumer brands, some of which include O2, eBay, Emirates, Ralph Lauren, Boots, Dr Martens, DreamWorks and The North Face. I also have worked in-house and developed internal design teams at large b2b organisations like Lightsource BP and AstraZeneca as well as smaller businesses and startups.

  • Jack Beard Photo
    Jack Beard PhotoTo design a logo for a freelance photographer. The client is a friendly, customer orientated worker but professional in practice, so the challenge was to bring this to the logo... and inevitably the branding. My idea was to create a illustration based logo. Fun to look at but should work across multiple platforms in both web and print. the typeface should also be friendly, so a script font would ideal, but one that is capable of a formal feel, in the right situation.
  • What we do...
