About me
I'm the co-founder of Citrus, a creative design and communications studio, alongside business partner Jim Cooper. Our role is to identify and resolve the challenges of function, user experience and aesthetic through an authentic, meaningful and creative response. For over two decades we’ve safely delivered identity, branding, print, copywriting and digital design solutions for people who want to inform and communicate with their audience in a more relevant, useful and valuable way.
