Creative and strategic development for campaigns across integrated media

I am essentially a creative thinker with all the requisite skills needed to bring my concepts to life. With a classical training in graphic design which included drawing, typography and concept generation, I am just as much at home refreshing a brand, developing a new consumer experience or creating an interactive environment. I embrace creative briefs that challenge and stretch the knowledge and skills I have acquired over the last 15 years. Equally adept at advertising, packaging, brand identities, brand strategy and all forms of visual communication (both on-line and off-line), I am very much a team player, enjoying and thriving upon the interaction with my colleagues. I am constantly inspired by those I work with, and aim to inspire and mentor others, in return.

Concept generation, visualisation, implementation, presentation to clients, client management, client development, written proposals and rationalisation

PRESIDENTS MEDALS 2012

GRAPHIC DESIGN / EXHIBTION / ANIMATION

BEAUTIFULLY ARTICULATED CONSTRUCTION Representing the work of architectural student’s from around the world, presents us with an interesting challenge each year. The brief requires us to develop a symbol or device that is easily adaptable for print (tickets and invitations), display (exhibition panels) and audio-visual presentation, which is then animated and shown on plasma screens and in a multimedia format. We have made good use of the circle, which represents the two medals awarded each year, reinventing it as a graphic form and discovering many beautiful and surprising permutations along the way.

MUSICIANS BENEVOLENT FUND

PROJECT

COPYWRITING | CORE ADVERTISING | DESIGN

LOVE MUSIC SUPPORT MUSICIANS MUSICIANS BENEVOLENT FUND looks after musicians of all ages and from all backgrounds. We were entrusted to develop a series of ads targeted at different stakeholder constituencies. In addition we were asked to create a logo and series of marketing ideas for a fund-rasing campaign:

Your notes will be music to their ears. With your help we support musicians of all ages (9-99) and from a variety of backgrounds. (picture story)

The Musicians Benevolent Fund: music and musicians, alive and well.

BRIEF: Firstly: create an advertising campaign for the Musicians Benevolent Fund (MBF) to be used, initially, across 3 publications - the Proms Guide, the Proms Programme and Barrister magazine. The main message is ‘donate’ - the ads should encourage the reader to donate to the MBF.

He should be singing the blues, not living them.

Secondly create a logo for use as a device for a fund-raising campaign with three distinct strands:

The Musicians Benevolent Fund, love music, support musicians.

MUSICIANS IN CRISIS (professional musicians who have a major illness, accident, emotional problem etc) MUSICIANS STAYING CONNECTED (older musicians and their well-being) MUSICIANS LAUNCHPAD (those at the beginning of a professional career)

With your help we support musicians of all ages (9-99) and from a variety of backgrounds. (picture story)
