I'm a creative Art Director with years of experience mostly in editorial graphic design. During that time, I've directed large budget photoshoots, commissioned photographers and illustrators during my extended magazine design experience, both customer and newstand. I have contributed to the construction of websites, microsites and catalogues I've created custom fonts and even directed some filming.
I'm currently employed as a Art Director at
The idea was to create a non too serious site for myself and a gallery for ideas and pictures. A playground of the unfinished, unpolished and otherwise unworthy.
This site is designed to be a space away from my day to day work. A roughly curated area for digital play, doodles, experiments and a home for the snaps I take with my trusty mirror-less camera.
The images I take, I process using RAW files and Fujifilm presets - hence the title Sans Filter, a nod towards my background as a graphic designer, my practice of doodling type and the refusal to comp or alter the images collated here, apart from normal processing.
Lots of people have been very encouraging and influential over the years, both professionally and personally, I'd like to give thanks to just a few here.
So in no particular order : Nina Brennan • Robert Jackson • Fabien Ecard • Mitchy Bwoy • Jim Lister • Budr El Nusairi • Emily El Nusairi • Graham Rounthwaite • Heiko Prigge • MW Bewick • Simon Purnel
