There is nothing quite like hand drawn type, charcoal makes everything a little messy – I like it! Unfortunately I can’t reveal a lot about this project, but I will be posting up more information when all is completed.Read More
The first peak of my career hit before commercial experience, still to this day I can’t believe what can be achieved through passion, graft, many mistakes and hard work. The exhibition has since become a permanent feature in The New York Times building, feel truly blessed to of been a part of “The lettering of On Language in the New York Times Magazine.”Read More
This is one of my most recent branding projects. Needing time to update my portfolio (and photograph these projects!), but here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to in design…
I was approached to design a logo and stationary for Ian Forbes, here is a peek into how the project concept was considered:
Spaces: created by architects who craft light creating beautiful shapes, forms and ambience.
—generating the sense of space and light using colour tones and structures within compositions.
—structured, confident, hold concept, uncomplicated and sophisticated.
—inspired by natural light, encroaching, reflecting, growing, interacting with surfaces.
I’ve had the pleasure of helping Elaine Auld develop her brand for Tuppence over the past few months. Tuppence is a new project bringing together old bric-a-brac to create original quirky homeware and gifts. Here is a little iPhone snap of her business card. The full project will be uploaded once the website design is complete!Read More
The new business cards are here just in time for the trip over the Barcelona! It’s the first time I’ll be experiencing OFFF, let’s feed the future, after hearing about the event over creative networks ever since it began! Looking forward to putting faces to names too, one being founder and editor of Designcollector Network – Arseny Vesnin.Read More

This takes me back to 2008. I was invited to work on some initial concepts for Food Should Taste Good. This idea combined the ingredients – one written ingredient/one usage. Feels like so long ago!
—Experimentation can generate interesting ideas.
After much research, sketching, coffee and design options I’ve chosen my new mark. Designers truly are their own worst client…
The mark is inspired by Old English text book typography—where the S&F are similar in form [see here]. With my love of design and photography the mark naturally lends itself to being symmetrical creating an extra dimension of the heart – without being too overt.
Simplicity is important and helps create a timeless feel.
