About me
I'm a motivated and ambitious graphic designer with a broad skill set and a penchant for beautiful letter forms. Experienced at every stage of the design journey from concept and brief to execution and delivery. Laid back guy, friendly and personable with a deep passion for design. I spend most of my time fussing over type stuff, dabbling in calligraphy, making stuff and getting obsessed with the invisible things that make design so rewarding. Currently trying to get re-centred amidst this COVID-reality and aiming to re-vamp the way in which I approach my own work practice.

  • BLOCK FIEND
    BLOCK FIENDSo at the start of lockdown I created a condensed slab style display typeface called "BlockFiend" I'm still fussing about with it but thought this was a bit of fun. It's intentionally a bit jarring as I think that's just what I was digging at the time! The typeface will be available for download soon and the 3D renders was created by my good friend Mat Spendlove (check out his stuff it's awesome)
  • CRUK Race For Life
    CRUK Race For LifeI was asked to create posters and custom typography treatments for the race For Life campaign from the start of 2019. It was a fun project
  • Grenfell Towers
    Grenfell TowersI was asked by one of the creative teams at Anomaly to put together some large scale projections for the Grenfell Towers charity. They wanted to draw attention to the lack of action taken by the British Government in the face of the tragedy from 2 years ago. It was a great project to be a part of and seeing the impact it made socially was wonderful. Full credit to Conrad, Alex and Jo for their vision.
  • Oh Geno!
    Oh Geno!Oh Geno was a short film based on the life of Geno Washington, a soul singer famous from the 1960s. It centred around his story of one fateful night that led him to the love of his life and the career of his dreams. I was approached along with my collaborator and dear friend Noor Ali to produce some posters and title screens for the premier of the film.
  • Salmon Club Branding
    Salmon Club BrandingSo for fun the other day I decided to brand my climbing club. Because why the hell not?
