It's all happening here!
November 17, 2017 Cotswold school careers fayre
I was asked to attend the Cotswold school annual careers fayre to promote a future in graphic design and what it entails. I was inundated with enthusiatic children who were interested in pursuing a creative career. To be able to open their minds to the opportunites for creative and imaginative individuals in the wide world of design was a humbling experience for me. I could honestly say that I am as passionate about design today as I was when I first started off myself as a student many years ago.

May 25, 2017 Teasel England, evolves!!
I created the original branding for Hannah Shaw over 6 years ago. With her recent move to new premises and the introduction of more contemporary fabrics, it was felt that the branding now needed to reflect the newer direction Teasel England was taking. The original idea of the fabric Teasel head was developed into a graphic version along with the introduction of a new colour palette for the branding.
June 20, 2017 Kings Head Hotel gets a revamp
I have been working on a smart new evolved look for the The Kings Head Cirencester, which has now started to appear in the hotel. I have designed a new look for the menus and stationery, the wine list and the room compendium in order to give the branding more consistent focus and to create a more upmarket hip hotel look for them.
Salperton Estate set for the season
I have almost completed the new branding for Salperton Estate, a grand shooting estate near Cheltenham. Along with the branding and stationery, I created the look for the staff uniforms, smart bottled water, carrier bags, gift packaging design for potted partridge and stationery. The last item to be designed is a beautifully shot brochure, by Amy Murrell and copy written by Christine Kidney, which is with the printers now. The branding will be ready for the September shoot season.
