Bio

Mediocrity has many fathers.

From complexity - as a brand mechanic - I strip and demystify a task and a brief to create ideas of simplicity. To facilitate simple, powerful ideas and brand building tools, I’m a huge advocate of finding out a business’ purpose and story. Those tools may include; staff activation ideas, business culture, change tools or ideas, or multi platform data utilisation ideas. Sometimes the task or brief is in the middle or at the end of a brand reset, therefore the idea may simply be, to go back and create a sense of purpose and story to add shape and meaning to the business or task.

I'm best known for...

In a word Cuisine, creating and designing the covers spans 10 years from 1999. The perception of me is of a high-end art director or designer, the reality is I have consolidated and morphed from an art/creative/design/spacial/ digital director and mentor into a singular, all rounder entity.

Mediums I know well

All platforms and channels.
