This website is an ongoing archive of selected design and artwork.

As a designer I’ve been producing books, brochures, catalogues, newspapers, magazines, record sleeves, logos and identities for over 20 years. I work with The Bluecoat, DaDaFest, The Double Negative, Can Cook and Darkhorse Design on a regular basis. I have worked with a variety of other organisations, artists, writers and musicians throughout my career. I enjoy and am particularly experienced working with arts based organisations and individuals.

As an artist I’m primarily interested in drawing based work but I also enjoy collage, photography and typography. I have exhibited locally in Merseyside and around the UK. In 2018 I collaborated with South Korean artist Haegue Yang for her installation at Tate Liverpool for Liverpool Biennial 2018. Between 2010 – 2015 I published eight issues of ‘Drawing Paper’ with my friend Jon Barraclough.

I also make electronic music and DJ as Bantam Lions and have released two LPs and some EPs and singles.
