Design is where it all started for me, beginning at school, then evolving into a career spanning over two decades. My final role in London was Brand Art Director with one of the world's most successful magazine publishers. I have dabbled in providing branding consultation, branding redesigns, and design work for many businesses. From dive manufacturers, non profit organizations, tourism companies, resorts, fellow filmmakers, and even the occasional tree surgeon. Good design is an essential part of effective communication, with strong branding being a vital asset for every business. Logo design and brand creation, to marketing assets, print and digital products, store fronts and everything in between. If you can think of it, I've already produced it.
I believe this strong foundation has ultimately led me to become a better filmmaker and Director.
