What most inspires me is learning something new – travelling to new places, reading a book, picking up new skills or learning from other designers. I think that being exposed to new ideas and new ways of doing things is really important – it stops you from getting stale and helps make you a much better designer.

I studied graphic design at Surrey Institute of Art & Design (now UCCA), graduating in 1999. After working for a year I went freelance and setup my own company, working on print and web projects and lecturing part-time at the Surrey Institute. In 2003 I returned to university (Kingston) to study an MA in Screen Design for Film & TV.

From 2005-07 I worked as a Senior Designer at Tileywoodman, involved in a diverse range of video, print and web projects for brands such as Canon, Unilever, Vodafone, RBS and Pfizer. I returned to freelancing in 2007, focusing mainly on broadcast design. In 2008 I did a 6-month stint as a covering Art Director at Nickelodeon.
