I’m back

I’ve finally gotten around to doing what most designers dread – their own website. Since leaving my job at The Partners almost 2 years ago to go freelance, I’ve created brand identities and websites for an aerial imaging company, a Mongolian cashmere accessories retailer, a Facebook app (coming soon), a private art & design tutor, an illustrator, a hospice (coming soon), and have been heavily involved with Macmillan Cancer Support’s expanding digital presence. I’ve also relocated twice, and have been training for the Virgin London Marathon 2012 for 18 months. No wonder I didn’t get round to doing my website! I haven’t really had my own design website before, so I’ve had to go through and filter out a lot of work since I started out 7 years ago. It was during this selection process that the idea for the site came to me. Inspired by my constantly changing wall of ideas in my studio, my site won’t be a traditional designer’s portfolio of 8-12 projects, but a growing wall of stuff that will become bigger with time. I also wanted the site to have a timeline feel, so I can include projects from long ago that I’m still proud of. See the Work section in action here. This blog on the other-hand will be a random collection of cool things I’ve seen, stuff I’ve been up to and my occasional ramblings. You can subscribe to my blog’s RSS feed here or follow me on Twitter. If you’d like to see my work in PDF format, you can download PDFs from my Portfolio Downloads page. Come back again soon!
