In that time I've been lucky to art direct countless photoshoots with A-list names including David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ricky Gervais and Ryan Giggs, and I've art directed product photoshoots for brands including LG, Panasonic, Guinness, Bentley, Jaguar, Manchester United, Roma, and many more.
I've redesigned magazines, worked on brand collateral, and created advertising for some of the world's best known brands - from Samsung, Manchester United, Sky Movies, LG, Renault and more.
I'm also a judge at the AIMA Creative awards in Australia, the Digital Magazine Awards in London. I've spoken at events on digital publishing and mobile products, and written several articles around the future of digital publishing and apps. I've won personal awards for my work and also been part of award-winning teams and publishers.
My approach to design is simple: to produce effective and captivating design solutions for my clients and their customers, underpinned by my love of typography, image creation, hands-on experience, solid thinking, close attention to detail, innovative ideas and well thought out concepts, on time, and on budget.
