I’m a sign writer, graphic designer, husband and Dad with a passion for typography, lettering and working by hand. 


With 12+ years of professional experience working as a designer I have assisted major brands, publishers, start ups, charities, advertising agencies, cafes, pubs and private individuals by developing identities, packaging, products, brochures, editorial illustrations and hand painted signs. 

My interest in typography and lettering has led me to explore traditional signwriting and gilding techniques which compliment my knowledge of the Adobe Creative suite. I can work remotely from my garden studio, on site or in-house as part of a team. 

Born and raised in Brighton I live in Worthing, West Sussex with my wife Stevie and our son Ernest.
