Dyke & Dean
I've worked with Dyke & Dean for several years, helping to craft a cohesive brand identity and visual language across retail space, packaging, communication, marketing and social media.
Creating a global packaging system for products and accessories with concise, effective graphic language helped establish them as world leaders in the bespoke lighting industry.
We have also worked together on large-scale interior design projects.
Creating a new identity for this specialist social housing provider. Working with Playne Design, I built a bespoke visual language and communication system that pivoted on allowing the logotype to animate, telling stories and reinforcing the customer relationship.
On The Level
An independent Somerset-based bar and brewery with a lot of ambition. Their launch brief to me was very clear, to create a sense of belonging, familiarity and connection with the landscape of their county.
One of the worlds leading animal rights advocates, his initial brief was to help organise and record his archive and library.
After discussing and reviewing the archive, I created a timeline and photographed the many books and artefacts, putting them together as a detailed publication that was instrumental in helping The British Library to understand, appreciate and formally acquire the collection in 2021.
Page Break Festival
Branding and layout for a unique festival of typesetting, printing and the newspaper trades, held at the site of the original printing presses.

Building Societies Association (BSA)
Examples of support and graphic communication, visualising complex concepts that synchronise with their audience whilst reinforcing their core brand language (for Playne Design)
BSA Annual Report
I was tasked with concept building to illustrate the Building Societies Association's annual report, suggesting that financial products could be viewed as physical 'products' with real-world qualities.
Taking this creative theme literally, I designed and built a series of cardboard 'packages' for each 'product' to support the text.
