About me
Hi, I'm Ian. I’m a Senior Creative with 10 years experience. Most of my experience is within conceptual thinking, where my background in design enabled me to naturally progress into a hybrid creative with a strong focus on art direction. I have worked in big agencies for small clients and small agencies for big clients, with big budgets/no budgets and everything in between. Across all platforms to deliver full-on 360 campaigns from the get go, but also jumping onboard at various stages to help teams deliver for their clients - and I'm just as comfortable either way. On the side I'm a consultant for creators that want to make content (any platform) that fuses together all the things i'm passionate about from; youth culture, heritage, fashion, dance, music and skating. Creating a great working atmosphere not just for myself but for everyone is what makes me happy.

  • Visible Sound
    Visible SoundThe intention for this project was to make sound visible. As there is already a variety of ways in which sounds can be seen (equalizers, sub-titles, etc.), my aim was to produce a device where that representation of sound would be a physical one. I therefore used the sewing machine as the basis for the project as I feel it is synonymous with industry, and making physical products. Due to limitations in my computer programming skills this model of a stereo/sewing machine is a prototype of how I imagined the actual product would look.
