About me
A senior designer of physical and digital experiences for brands, property and people. Through deep integrated agency experience I have helped to bring brands to life through creative campaigns, stand-out identities, engaging digital and high-end print. I strongly believe in the importance of connecting with people, constantly exploring new approaches and ideas that aim to engage and inspire.
Projects
  • Positioning a new major player in the gold buying market.
    Positioning a new major player in the gold buying market.AvantGold possess a new, unique and innovative service to buying and distributing gold. This advantage over their established competitors needed to be brought to life and positioned in order to engage with it’s potential high-net-worth investors. The precious metals sector is one that’s saturated with cookie-cutter logos and cliché images, all with little or no personality to the brand, so AvantGold had a way in - one that tells a rich story (literally), with a luxury lifestyle led experience.

    Setting a new standard in luxury living in Brighton & Hove.A collection of 9 boutique apartments sit adjacent to a beautiful landscaped park in the heart of Hove.

    A global identity for an exciting new development in the heart of Cambridge.This was all about excitement and opportunity. 3 & 4 Station Square’s spectacular position in the heart of CB1, Cambridge’s contemporary quarter, gives access to the new professional hub where some of the world’s biggest companies reside. With the recent regeneration of Station Square itself, the area has emerged as a social desitination in its own right. Research and planning played a vital role in communicating the opportunity available to both UK and overseas markets. A distinct, typographic
  • An ethically inspired brand for an exciting boutique finance start-up.
    An ethically inspired brand for an exciting boutique finance start-up.Deliver something professional but different to what the industry currently sees. That was the brief for a new boutique finance company that wanted to be seen individually, and whose hands on engagement and no-nonsense approach underpin their ethos. There isn’t much in the way of fun when it comes to brands in the finance industry. Forward, however, wanted to shake it up a bit. They wanted something punchy and fresh in order to stand out. The logo is bold and confident, encapsulating the team’
  • Re-energising a popular market town opportunity.
    Re-energising a popular market town opportunity.An independent developer explained of a struggling site in historic Aylesbury, where sales were poor and interest was low. The site needed some attention and a new focus. In order to propose a campaign concept the first challenge was to work out what was currently missing. For a range of apartments that appealed to first time buyers and commuters there had been no sense of fun in the original identity. There was also nothing to promote the town they would be living in.
