After years of collaborating with large teams, these days I prefer to work with individuals and small businesses who need effective, unique, quality designs. My experience and skills combine to provide a thoughtful, clear and creative approach to visual communications. I listen carefully to who you are and what you need and carry that throughout the entire design process. I work hard to ensure that your design will be as individual as you so that it truly reflects you and your business.

How I work
I value all the good stuff: kindness, patience, fairness, creativity, individuality, honesty, sustainability, renewables, small footprints and big belly laughs. I work from my home which is powered by renewables, my finances, (through bank and super) are invested in renewables and reforestation and every day I fight for the wellbeing of our environment.
Above all, I believe in beauty. Yours, mine, the earth, and the universe beyond. And the beauty we can create together.
What I offer
Bespoke website creation (no templates) using your own material or photography, designs or video imagery I create for you. Together we can build a unique, engaging, affordable website for you and/or your business.
Brand Design: If clean-cut corporate is what you are after, I'm probably not the designer for you. But I'm guessing if you're still reading this, you already know that. Brands are powerful - yes. They are also fun and should reflect multiple facets of the business/person they represent. It's an involved and time-consuming process because it is meaningful.
Typography: If that sounds like too much for you, I can create a unique typographic mark for you instead. This is a great way to get your unique mark into the world on a budget.
Printing: However you want to play it is fine by me. I can provide you with the artwork and you arrange printing yourself, or I can manage that for you as well. I prefer to work with environmental and sustainable printers. There are a number of operators in Australia who use 100% post-consumer recycled paper, non-toxic inks and are powered by renewables.
Desktop Publishing: Ironically, I was doing this before I started working in film all those years ago. I think there is a lot of fun that can be had with desktop publishing design for books, newsletters, flyers and postcards.
A bit about Me
I am currently living and working on the lower Hawkesbury River in NSW and offer services locally, in Sydney and across the world.
Amongst decades of work, and life experience, I studied at the National Art School in Sydney, The Australian Center for Photography and The Graphic Design School, Sydney. I started working with Photoshop in the 1990's and have largely self-taught my way through the adobe suite ever since. I worked in film and television production for 20 years and spent almost half of that teaching the same at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
