Book Cover Design & Illustration

Upperthong is a village outside Huddersfield in North Yorkshire. When author John Simes and his agent got in touch asking if I could do the cover to his book, 'The Upperthong Thunderbolt', I just assumed he was from there. When I found out he was based in Devon I was surprised, but I shouldn't have […]

Branding the Kings Arms, Salford

Back in 2018, I did the logo and rebranding on the Kings Arms Theatre pub in Salford, but I never did a blog, so here it is. As a regular there they knew me well as my graphic design work for other productions had already graced their walls. When it came to their rebrand, they […]

Explainer Video - For Science!

What is an explainer video? Well as you can probably guess they're videos that help explain a particular topic. The goal of an explainer video is to take a potentially quite complicated subject and make it engaging and easier to understand.

Building the new Luc Hoffmann Institute Website

Brochure Illustration for Manchester City Council

Before I started drawing and illustration, my older brother Peter would draw comic strips. In some ways he did a lot of things I got interested in, apart from football. Through the years the idea of collaborating had never really crossed my mind, until a few month ago when he suggested it, so it was […]

Branding for Shore Thing Theater

'Theater'? That's not a typo. My annual visit to the USA allows me to meet a lot of new creative folks with business plans. This month I've been helping Ria Toricelli  with the branding of her new theatre space 'Shore Thing Theater' in New Jersey. Simliar to a previous branding project for The Fresnel Theater  […]

Illustration, motion graphics and voice work combine in this video production for The University of Manchester. Back in January, I started work on a video project for The University of Manchester. The brief was to celebrate and publicise their 'school governors initiative', a programme where university staff help schools and colleges to improve, and in […]

New Client, The Luc Hoffmann Institute

At the beginning of the year, I was referred to the environmental and conservation organisation The Luc Hoffmann Institute to help out behind the scenes with their website and social media requirements. It's a pretty straightforward job for me, but worth mentioning as looking over their website,  the work they do is very important for […]
