I've had the pleasure of producing successful design for great clients and agencies over the years. Here is a small sample.
A selection of ads I've produced.
Pan-African finance advertising for Brand Communications, London. Retouching – multi-part comp, working with a Photographer, Account Director, Copywriter and Creative Director (Ben Millar). This ad "runs" across over 30 African countries.
Pan-African finance advertising for Brand Communications, London. Illustration conversions from the TV campaign to work in print. Re-drawing the hand, bank card, phone and laptop for optimum standout standout in print.
Healthcare advertising for Canada Life (Agency - The Riot Squad, Bedford). Working with the Illustrator Elliott Quince, we produced a series of trade ads that really stood out in the often sterile world of corporate health insurance.
National campaign for Vauxhall, coverage included OOH, press and trade advertising (Agency - BMB, CD Iain Hills).
Having cut my teeth as a Senior Creative Artworker at The Partners, London, I'm adept at crafting master artworks through to nuts-and-bolts branding roll-out. I've used this experience on many high profile projects since, including this one for Vauxhall Motors (for BMB).
I have over 20 years' experience designing, managing and producing brochures in all formats, and many languages.
Event competition handout for Saab GB (Agency, BMB).
Interim/event product catalogue for Make International and BBC Great British Throwdown Judge, Keith Brymer-Jones (Agency, Narrative Industries, Bedford). Design, retouching and artwork.

CenterParcs brochures, pre-2010 for BMB, Luton.
Product brochures, icons and diagrams for Heatline (part of the Vaillant Group), for BMB, Luton.
I started fixing images using Photoshop 1.0 and haven't stopped since. Here is a before-and-after for one of London's premium boutique hotels, The Athanaeum. The work was completed for FourIV, London.
The approved result.
One of my favourite and most challenging projects was for a luxury brand's flagship store in Taipei. Working with an interior designer we created and merged "Rothko" effect patterns with a geometric tonal pattern . The design started as blue ink soaked into heavy paper, and the natural soft patterns were worked up to fit glass cases that created a frame. (Agency, FourIV, London)
These monograms were potential designs worked up from sketch for Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Taipei.
