I’m an independent graphic designer and photographer based in East London. I design books and brands. I make photographic work of the built environment. And I teach part-time at Ravensbourne University.

Hackney studio

I share a co-working studio with Morris+Company architects. Located on Mare Street, a short walk from London Fields, the space is a vibrant, dynamic environment which encourages creative collaboration across a range of disciplines.

In addition to the MoCo team, the studio is occupied by a range of creatives, including smaller architecture practices, photographers and designers. If you’re ever in the area, stop by for a coffee! Photograph below by Jack Hobhouse.

Graphic design

A strong typographic approach underpins all my graphic design work — I believe good type should be at the heart of everything, whether that’s in print, digital or motion. I enjoy taking on any new design brief, but I’ve established a particular specialism in book design, and for working with architects.

I gained over ten years of full-time experience in the design industry before establishing my own practice in the summer of 2021. My three defining jobs were as a junior designer for Wallpaper magazine (2010–12); as a digital designer for Sennep (2012–15); and as a senior designer for DNCO (2015–21).

Photography

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 began to change after I visited Japan. My photographs from that trip were first self-published as a book, and then exhibited at Gareth Gardner Gallery in the autumn of 2021.

Following from this, I decided to leave full-time employment so that I could pursue my photographic practice in equal balance with my graphic design work. I am now available for commissions, shooting primarily architecture and the built environment, but also portraits and other details. In 2023 my first major photobook, East End Pubs, was published by Hoxton Mini Press.
