I have extensive experience in all areas of creative art directing including; design, photography, typography, moving image, mark making and calligraphy. I have worked in all aspects of music packaging creating cover art, special editions, posters, press ads, merchandising, production and moving image, as well as book and exhibition design.
This publication ‘Analogue Process 1987-2019’ is a collection of various analogue experiments and proposals for various design projects from a 32 year period. All of these visuals have been created using only the analogue process, I have kept sketch books and process books on a yearly basis, it’s still a very important part of my working process, I only really engage with a computer at the final stage of a projects final development.
Regarding this publication there is a random aspect to the layout, the accidental aspect of various juxpositions has created some interesting compositions that will go onto informing future work. Embrace the accident!
As well as running my studio I am a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design, at the School of Art at the University of Brighton. I have research interests in visualising music and sound. Experimentation and collaboration are essential to my working process, in which I see sound and visuals are inseparable, with one informing the other.
