Usually it’s just you and the two of us.
I like to talk things through, over a desk, with a notebook to hand. My role is to work with the you to determine and implement brand and design strategies that align with business goals, turning grey areas to black or white.
When not at work, given half a chance, I’ll be on my motorbike. It’s my happy place.
For over 20 years I’ve helped businesses to better communicate with their customers. As a strategist, a creative director but always from the perspective of a designer.
I am happy to say that I am still a designer after 20+ years in the industry and most days can be found at a desk, in front of a computer or with a notebook and pen in hand.
If a project demands more minds, we bring in carefully selected associates to work with us. Here’s a brief introduction to our identity people.
