About me
Creative Director of a boutique agency since 2008. Team of two enthusiastic designers who love producing anything from large wall murals, to small hand-crafted print items, to cheeky social media campaigns. We have worked with international brands such as New Look, MTV and DJ Marc Kinchen, as well as a number of SMEs; lots of start ups and numerous charitable causes such as Pride CI. and Les Amis, Jersey. We offer branding, illustration, graphic design, hand lettering, conceptual copywriting, print, advertising, social media, art direction, signage, wall art etc... We work with a close networks of animators, photographers, web designers and marketing experts and a global market research company to deliver creative solutions. When I am not working on commercial projects I have a side-line in screen printing and street art. Using a mixture of collage, screen printing and stencilling techniques. Works can be seen around London and most recently at Glastonbury Festival 2019.
  • A I R
    A I RA little post I made to share with friends on instagram about my feelings during isolation week 3. Reposted from @katie.killip Not sure what to make out of all these feelings at the moment. So I’m making some new art out of them... Suffocating in the silence of this new affliction, in the city I always loved for its big bubbly personality. Tense faces are masked or wrapped up in scarves. I catch myself wondering if it’s safe to breath. I look up and wonder how long we’re really all going to do

    Best BrandCIM | The Chartered Institute of Marketing
    Winner of Best Brand for my work on behalf of Healthhaus, Jersey. I was responsible for the conceptual copywriting, branding design, print, advertising design, content creation, marketing planning, project management and all on-going traditional and social media campaigns. I also coordinated a team that put together and managed the media planning and spending and created branded items for both pre-sale and post opening of this brand new venue/private members club. "The judges were impressed by the exceptionally clear and smart objectives, robust planning, clear development stage by stage. A strong evidence based approach to the brand strategy development, thinking through everything from POS to interior design, above and below the line products, branding, colours etc. Excellent differentiation strategy. Really beautiful design work with intrinsic values permeating all aspects of the design. A very clear understanding of the competition – and an ability through the design to really stand out from the pack. Exceptionally clear value proposition “If I lived in the C.I. I would want to join this gym”. This campaign found out who its target market was and delivered a campaign that was completed centred around them as demonstrated in their outcomes."
    Best Integrated Marketing CampaignCIM | The Chartered Institute of Marketing
    Winner of Best Integrated Marketing Campaign for my work on behalf of Healthhaus, Jersey. "This entry demonstrated an excellent multi channel approach to saturate the market in terms of share of voice. Exceptional implementation, using a huge variety of methods and channels, but all very clearly tied back to their objectives and key markets. Some channels worked better than others. Execution was sophisticated and branding lovely. The message was consistent, targeted and clear. Very effective measurement, against very clear objectives, resulting in highly successful outcomes. The business has a wonderful concept behind it. Perfect for the market it targets."
