I am currently Creative Director of Studio Frank, a design consultancy I co-founded, working with clients and agencies helping them to develop their creative content and design work. Our clients have included BBC Worldwide, Berenberg, Royal Mail, the River Group and Sony Entertainment.

Previously I have also worked for some of the UK’s best-known publications, brands and agencies, including Lexus, British Airways, GQ and The Times, as well as for John Brown Media, Bauer Media and Neville Brody Associates.
