I worked for twenty years in London as a designer, where I won a number of national and international awards. I was creative director of WPP, an owner of Coley Porter Bell design agency for several years before going on to co-own the eminent Ziggurat Brands, before setting up on my own in the Cotswolds in 2009.
Although I loved working with major global brands such as Coca Cola, Cadburys and Unilever, I wanted to work more closely with entrepreneurs and brand owners to deliver new branding and revolutionise existing ones. One of my key strengths is the ability to really get under the skin of what a client and brand need, through listening and building close relationships with my clients. It has been incredibly satisfying to work in this way, to see how bold, effective design can completely transform a whole business in terms of its identity, confidence and success.
Having owned a business and managed a creative team, I also understand how business works and am able to bring this experience to my relationships with my clients.
