About

I’m an independent typographic designer and communications consultant. I work with clients from a variety of sectors.

My approach requires understanding people, processes and systems to help illuminate a problem and lead to successful solutions.

I specialise in document design and information design (including wayfinding design & consultancy). I try to create documents, maps, signs, forms etc. that are simple, inclusive and useable.
