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


With over twelve years of experience working as a designer and sign painter I have assisted well known brands, publishers, printers, private individuals, start ups, charities, advertising agencies, cafes, pubs, barbers, restuarants, a bank, a bakery and Britain’s last surviving temperance bar.

I have developed illustrations, logos and identities, designed products and packaging and more recently designed, hand-painted and gilded shop fascias and windows with genuine gold leaf. 

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