Creative Design Director

About Me

Hi, I’m John, a design director and creative visionary delivering results for premium luxury brands.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the worlds best know brands and helped launch some of their most successful products. From kickstarter firebrands to large international conglomerates, each and every client is unique and each with their own different design challenges. Discovering and tailoring design solutions, nurturing creative ideas into beautiful strategic designs is where I excel.

In 2017, I was invited to be Head of Design for Dermalogica UK & Ireland. During my time there I oversaw the expansion of the design team and helped bring to market some of their most successful product launches to date. I have also had the pleasure of working at some amazing design agencies Revere, VCCP, Grey and Orbit to name a but a few.

If there are any design problems you would like me to solve, let’s talk.
