//film Magazine & //disc Magazine

A magazine publishing concept cover I came up with; a magazine that was half about film releases and half about home video/DVD release, upside down from each other and ending in the middle, if that makes sense – when you’d read ‘//film’, you’d flip it over and start reading ‘//disc’...

My own website to showcase all my work as a reporter, going back to 1997 when I had my first ever article published. It doesn’t include absolutely every piece of content I’ve created for media both online and off all over the world, because I’ve forgotten more short roundup pieces,...

About Me

When I started in graphic design, nobody had the internet but academics at universities. I was a newspaper recruitment ad typesetter and we used to send the files to media outlets over a dedicated, pre-web BBS …ask your parents.

A generation later in software capability, creative trends and media channels (some of which could quite frankly do with a decent designer), I’ve done almost everything; logos, print design, books and magazines, stationery, packaging and advertising, websites, digital marketing design for email newsletters and social media and everything in between.

My main hustle is as a writer, which you can see examples of here and here, so whenever I’m not designing for a customer I’m doing it for self expression and my own entertainment. The example above is a random sample from my oeuvre, but click the menu above – there are tons more.
