Artist Statement:
I draw my inspiration from all manner of things. There’s the usual suspects of course music, pieces of art i.e. Turner, Nicholson, Pollock. Pieces of design; check out the book Latino America Graffica, well worth a scan. It really depends what I’m working on that dictates my focus. I like to think that my eyes and mind are always open to new things, old things; whatever’s there to be seen.



D&AD Creative Review
This piece is a promotional poster for Creative Review to allow people on the fringe of the art and design world i.e. hobby artists to know about the publication. This would go into ad-shells at bus stops primarily. I wanted the piece to have vigour and

Dreams-Book jpegs

These images are extracts from a personal project. I created a dream diary with a twist, that being the emphasis was on the visual aspects of my dreams and not the meanings of them.


D&AD Glenfiddich
I created this logo with a younger audience in mind, to be precise ABC1 25-35. Glenfiddich required a product with Corporate I’D to sell to this more ‘urban’ market.
I kept Glenfiddich’s original colours for the sake of brand familiarity and drew inspiration from Water, Nike, Sony, Levi’s, Coffee, Milk, and Bass Shandy & what I considered would be one of it’s closest market rivals ‘Barcardi Twist’ shooters.


D&AD Glenfiddich
I wanted to create a product that would stand out from the other drinks in fridge at the bar. The product holds a shot of Glenfiddich, a shot of coffee, a shot of clotted cream and two sugars to level the flavour. Instead of a normal bottle cap a peel off lid inspired from the wax seal off the Glenffidich Single malt bottle was used. This was to emphasise the creaminess of the drink.


RSA Student Awards
This was a conceptual brief where I created a Corporate I’D for a ‘green product’ for Shell Oil. The product was to be purchased at Shell Oil garages and consists of a carry out three-course meal and a drink of water. I think the name is simple, memorable and punchy. The colours used are the Shell Oil red and yellow, for brand familiarity, reversed.
