Freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire UK

I'm an illustrator and graphic designer with 15 years commercial experience, designing and producing work for print, digital/web and motion projects.

The majority of my work is character-based vector illustration, but it also encompasses hand-drawn lettering, making maps, logo design & branding and much more besides. I'm based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire (UK), though location isn't a barrier – I’ve worked with clients all over the UK and further afield.

From single panel newspaper adverts to 90-page annual reports, business cards, exhibition displays and banners, to websites and digital dashboards – over the years I've developed strong skills in typography and layout, and an appreciation of a well-crafted grid. As well as my digital skills, I like to get away from the screen when possible to create mockups, scrawl on walls and experiment with different analogue tools and processes.

I'm particularly interested in opportunities for representation and illustration work for publishing, and would love to get a foot in the door of the video-games industry in a design or art-related role – any advice, assistance or offers in this regard would be especially welcome. I'm also open to opportunities for representation.

I'm currently available for projects, collaborations and commissions, so if you're looking to hire an illustrator or designer for a project, please get in touch for a chat, request a quote or sign-up to the mailing list to get updates on what's happening and when.
