About me
After 12 years working as a graphic designer specialising in logos and brand identity, I felt I needed to break away from the constraints of the computer. Picking up a pen and paper, I moved towards a more illustrative style and developed a genuine passion for traditional hand lettering and brush script. After practicing the craft for a few years, I began to see how hand lettering and custom logos could really enhance design. Suddenly my work felt alive and had soul! Increasingly customers from the creative and craft sector began approaching me in order to bring a more human touch to their brands. This work has included logos, branding, packaging, promotional materials and hand painted signs. Having been on this developmental journey and developed a genuine obsession for the craft, I feel my design skills now have an exciting place in today’s thriving craft industries. An initial conversation costs nothing. Have an idea? Let’s chat! Paul

    Handmade cut and paste posterA poster I created for Don't Believe The Hype, a hip hop special at Rough Trade in Nottingham. The night was to promote the realise of NG83 - When we were B-Boys, a film about breakdancing crews in Nottingham in the 80's. I decided to go for a cut and paste idea to fit in with how people created posters at the time.
