About me

I’m an award-winning creative, with over 30 years experience. My interest is in furthering information and environmental graphic design by continually challenging the technical and creative disciplines. My primary strength lies in determining how to communicate information optimally across different media – from print to screen to installation. With a well-accomplished background in information graphic design – for both print and digital incl. identity/branding, brochures, report & accounts, coffee-table books, websites, interactive media – I have, in recent years, also developed a specialism in cultural placemaking and wayfinding which allows me to explore and develop unique design solutions for buildings, urban places, parks and landscapes. I develop narrative wayfaring and interventions that give a sense of ownership and meaning to the communities that live, work and play in their own places. In doing this, citizens feel a connection and understanding of their environment which inspires to create a greater sense of community. My work includes nomenclature, branding and the development of identity and information systems for places and buildings to create sympathetic modern contemporary solutions that ensure places have a coherent, appropriate and desirable approach to environmental and spatial information design making them more accessible. Well-branded information materials for both print and digital communications are also developed as part of a cohesive approach. I continue to develop information graphic design across a variety of sectors and I am often seen on the speaking circuit in the UK and Scandinavia presenting my ideas on design and bringing meaning to place. I am a: Member of the International Society of Typographic Designers RSA Fellow Academician of the Academy of Urbanism Associate member of the Landscape Institute Member of the international Placemaking Leadership Council
