About me

I am an Art Director that loves getting the chance to get stuck in creating illustrations, taking photos and making other creative imagery for use in my designs and am always learning new techniques, reading about current design philosophies or learning a new piece of software. I have produced work for bands like R.E.M and The Fall, brands like Coca Cola and Sony Playstation and entertainment companies such as Warner Bros, The BBC, ESPN, Universal and more. Currently I am an Art Director / Creative Director for Hogarth / WPP and create and manage campaigns and brands for a number of our big clients.
