About me
I am a London-based Digital Designer and Art Director, with over 15 years industry experience. Clients I have worked with include Ellesse, Nike, Speedo, Chelsea FC, BBC, Accenture, Intel and Morgan Sindall. I love creating identities, experimenting with type and bringing design to life through animation. I enjoy collaborating with other designers, editors, animators and developers to create amazing work. In my spare time I make electronic music. I’m often asked whether my surname is fictional. I can assure you it’s not! (although I admit it is remarkably convenient.)
Projects
  • Slash Football
    Slash FootballSplit across Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and Twitter, Slashfootball covers everything from grass roots football, to trick shots to professional league level with it’s unique, often cheeky and irreverent tone of voice. Working closely with production, I developed a bold and energetic brand approach, animating title sequences and working directly on edits. I developed multiple versions of the logo for ease of use and variation. The italicised typeface provides energy and pace.
  • On Point
    On PointEllesse wanted to reignite its association with tennis, appealing to its core target audience of street-savvy 18-30 year olds. Enter, On Point. A campaign connecting street style and tennis. We brought together a crew of influencers and delivered a social content campaign that culminated in a pop-up event in London’s Soho, where custom-designed Ellesse products were given away.
  • Posters
    PostersA mixture of various projects from over the years, in poster form.
  • Rebel FC
    Rebel FCI designed this Rebel FC badge for the legendary YouTube football team. Sponsored by Under Armour and fronted by Calfreezy, the squad have trained alongside Man City, been coached by Rio Ferdinand and reached the final of the EE Wembley Cup.
  • The Red Green & Blue
    The Red Green & BlueThe Red Green & Blue is an on-going musical solo project of mine. I needed an original video to accompany my track “Forget You”. Working in After Effects I created a series of animated scenes that revolve around abstract shapes and patterns. These were then remixed and cut together in time with the music.
  • VTRND
    VTRNDFrom the wonderful to the bizarre to the hilarious to the inspiraional, VTRND encompasses the best in internet culture. With over 17 million followers on FaceBook and split across multiple platforms including Snapchat and TikTok, the VTRND brand needed a strong and recognisable identity.
