I'm a creative Art Director with years of experience in editorial graphic design for both customer and newstand titles.
During that time, I've directed large budget photoshoots, commissioned photographers and both created and curated illustrations during my design experience. I have contributed to the construction of websites, microsites and catalogues I've created custom fonts and even directed some filming, working closely with production companies.
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 the odd Fujifilm presets - hence the title Sans Filter, a nod towards my background as a graphic designer, my practice of doodling, drawing type and the 'fuss' free approach to images collated here.
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 • Paul Wilson
