“I started his career at a small design agency in Lichfield before moving away to Australia for a short period of time. Upon returning to the UK, I secured a job at a mid-sized agency in Leicester where I worked with a range of well known confectionary and pet food brands. I found the commute to be a real battle and made the decision to set up Design Pit in 2012. The rest, they say, is history…”

“I’ve always worked with identity and branding throughout my career. Everything stems from a strong identity and as a designer, you are always at the forefront of cultivating that identity for your clients”.
“Design for print is an art form. Even in the digital age, we still rely on print in our day to day lives and there is nothing more satisfying than getting a nice bit of printed material in the post! Print is not dead”.
“I love the challenge of designing something that will jump off the shelf and make people part with their hard earned cash! Seeing something you’ve designed on the shelves proves how important design is when selling products”.
“Despite being a print geek, I love creating content and campaigns for social media. Working out key messages and telling a story in a fast paced medium is something that I thrive on”.
