Founder and Creative Director. I love creative tech. The idea of taking the digital world from the screen and put into the real world just fascinates me. How much can we - humans - learn with the ability to see beyond what is in front of us?
With a background in 3D Animation and Digital Graphics, I have over 15 years experience in visual communication across a range of creative industries from film and visual effects to museums, DVDs, product visualisation and interactive media.
Art Director and Illustrator. A scientific training combined with a deep love of art contribute to my distinctive approach to visual work. Form arises naturally from our understanding of things and this inspires me to dig deep for my illustration and design work. The best creative designs and illustrations are the fruit of true co-creation between client and designer. Working with corporate clients, publishers and museums over the past 20 years, I have loved creating original projects for annual reports, magazines, exhibition designs and illustrated books for children.
