I have worked as a designer since late 1980s, when I did work experience with Arundel-based Warren Denyer Design and in the 1990s, with Chris and Micki Slade at The Publicity Partnership. I have designed branding, websites and print for a range of clients, from independent shops to cultural organisations.
Strong graphics, branding and identity also form part of my practice as an artist: projects such as Ministry of Littlehampton and Bedford Happy are based around a bold graphic identity.
As well as working directly as a designer, I have acted as a design consultant with clients like The Shell Grotto, who I helped develop a new and flexible identity that could be applied to print, web and within their building. For Rat Race, I designed a new brand, including a style guide and language to describe their role, and gave them the tools and confidence to apply it across shop, point of sale, web and promotional print.
Similarly, I create a loose set of parts for the Troublemakers’ Festival in Swansea, which their in-house team used to create a strong visual identity applied to print, promotion, and across the festival’s events.
