About me
Since attaining my degree in design and multimedia, I've spent several years honing his craft at London’s leading ad agencies including Wieden + Kennedy, AKQA and Ogilvy amoung others, where I've provided campaigns and award winning ideas for clients such as Nike, Coke, Adidas and Samsung to name a few. I continue to work as a freelance creative and experiment on an eclectic mix of creative projects across all areas of visual communication. I also pursues a number of self driven creative and research projects including a weekly podcast, talks, ongoing journal, and regular creative workshops. I also founded creativecatalogue.co.uk a website designed to aid advertising professionals in conceptulisation and deck creation.
  • Suave - Type Design
    Suave - Type DesignSuave Typography Suave is a display font I created that was inspired by the beauty of the 1920s Art Deco era. It is now available in a cross platform format in 4 weights and can be downloaded for £10. The Worst Use Case To Date.. The worst, but unfortunately also the most notable use case for the type so far has been Paris Hilton's album cover 'Good Time' in which her face was featured 6 times. I'm happy to announce that I wasn't responsible for the design.
  • Crep Protect
    Crep ProtectCrep Protect is a liquid repellant designed to protect your ‘crep’s’ from every day dirt and liquid splashes. Since the technology came out there has been many demonstration examples put online from a number of different brands involving a range of different substances. I felt this was getting boring. It was hard to ignore that the product demonstration was the best way to sell the product claims, but there had to be a better and more attractive way to do it.
