I’ve been sailing the high seas of graphic design for over 16 years and for me as a designer inspiration is everywhere. It comes from the natural patterns all around me on a walk in the woods to the view from a train on the commute into work.
I’m a bit of a magpie, always collecting scraps of images, shapes,typography, colours, textures and words. My notebooks are bursting with snippets and sketches of things which spark ideas.
I use whatever is the best design solution to get the message across in my professional and personal work. I’m always learning new techniques and technologies to put the audience at the heart of everything I do to create work with warmth and flair.
And most of all I put myself into my work, as Oscar Wilde said;
“Be yourself, everyone else is taken”.
“Kent County Council has rolled out a brilliantly planned and coordinated communications campaign, MakeKentQuicker.com aimed at getting people to register their interest in broadband. To attract investment for faster broadband, it first had to prove there was a demand for the service. Using an imaginative range of online and offline media, in only 11 weeks it had 10,000 registrations. It is only a matter of time before Kent is zooming along the digital superhighway at breakneck speed.”

“Paul has been brilliant in supporting our services. He has supported us in loads of projects over the past few months, and has always approached everything we have done with enthusiasm and positivity. He’s been great when we have changed the goalposts or asked for changes as we go along, and he’s always full of ideas and ways we can refine the content he helps us with. All of the team have built a really good relationship with him and he’s really helped us in developing our service look and feel.”
Damien Ellis, Head of In House Provision, Kent Adult Social Care
“Thank you Paul, for a great piece of work, it has made a real difference to the lives of people with a learning disability.”
Tina Walker, Chair, Kent Learning Disability Partnership Board
“A huge thank you. Paul is always on hand for any easy read questions we have. He has recently supported us in re branding Freeways – our in house day service which teaches catering skills for adults with a learning disability. He took the time to come out and take some beautiful photographs and update all of our literature. We are so grateful for all his help, knowledge and advice and cannot wait to show off our leaflets at our information event on 28th September.”
Rachel Westlake, Manager at Gravesham, Dartford and Swanley services for people with a learning disability.
