I’m an award-winning creative, with over 30 years experience – interested in furthering information and environmental graphic design by continually challenging the technical and creative disciplines.
I specialise in cultural placemaking and wayfinding which allows me to explore and develop unique design solutions for buildings, urban places, parks and landscapes. I develop narrative wayfaring and interventions that give a sense of ownership and meaning to the communities that live, work and play in their own places. In doing this, citizens feel a connection and understanding of their environment which inspires to create a greater sense of community. I work in collaboration with architects, property developers, social housing, municipalities, corporates, arts organisations and retail. Designs are implemented directly into the landscape, often using unique innovative fabrication techniques, along with options to create augmented reality apps for mobile devices, which can engage with information on a deeper level along with location and trail mapping. My work also includes the branding and development of identity and information systems for buildings to create sympathetic modern contemporary solutions that ensure buildings have a coherent, appropriate and desirable approach to environmental and spatial information design making our places more accessible.I am often seen on the speaking circuit, at events about place and the built, and natural, environment in the UK and Scandinavia presenting my ideas on place heritage, citizen participation and bringing meaning to place through historical and contemporary narrative.
