I’ve been sailing the high seas of graphic design for over 15 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.”
