I’ve always been interested in buildings, and since graduating with a degree in Graphic Communication, I’ve been able to establish myself as a designer that works predominantly in architecture. After leaving university in Bath I moved to London and began work as a freelance designer for Jump Studios, before becoming a junior at Wallpaper* magazine. There I honed my craft of editorial design, learning from a fantastic team of designers, writers and photographers, covering all things design and architecture related.
Following from Wallpaper* I spent three years as a digital designer for Sennep, before moving to become a senior designer at DNCO, a studio specialising in culture and place. I spent over six years working on exciting projects with an incredible range of architects and developers — the highlight being Television Centre in White City. Since establishing my own studio I continue to work with architects, offering a specialist knowledge of branding and print projects.
I’ve been obsessively taking photos for as long as I can remember. However for many years whilst I was working full-time as a graphic designer, photography was more of a hobby than professional practice. That all changed in 2019 when I finally made it to Japan, a country I had been keen to visit for a long time. My photographs from that trip were first self-published as a book, and then exhibited at Gareth Gardner Gallery in London. I was inspired to take my photography more seriously, and since then have been working hard refining my approach. In 2021 I left DNCO and set up my own studio so that I could pursue my photographic practice in equal balance with my graphic design work.
In 2023 my first major photobook was published by Hoxton Mini Press. East End Pubs, made in collaboration with London Pub Explorer, is a survey of 65 iconic boozers in the traditional east end of London. Making the book was a joy, discovering unique buildings and meeting some of the most fascinating landladies and lords who are at the helm of these treasured institutions.
