Overview

I'm a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art who spent 2 years working between Glasgow and New York. During this period I collaborated with several design collectives creating works for galleries and publications across America and Britain.

My passion for print and typography have been recognised by the Scottish Design Awards where I received the Design Grand Prix, Best Publication and Best use of Craft awards. In my first year as a designer I was also long listed for Scottish Young Designer of the Year.

I now have over 10 years experience, run my own design agency from a small studio in Glasgow...

...and have a dog called Oscar.
