About me

I’m an art director who has worked in London, Los Angeles and New York. I like to create work thats engaging, amusing and fun. My work has won awards and praise from the AIGA Design Archive, the Clios, MarCom Awards, Royal College of Art, YCN, Penguin Books, Hearst Publishing & Creative Review Magazine. I'm the founder of Mean Mail. Mean Mail makes cards for those you love and love to hate. They’re inspired by the way best friends talk to each other and the Oscar Wilde quote “True friends stab you in the front.” They're stocked in Liberty, Colette and we ship internationally.
