Once I’d got a computer and realised the direction I wanted to go in I was off.

Well actually it took a good push from my mum, a radical change in lifestyle and the generosity of a few good people, and I found myself as the designer for a small graphics firm. Soon after I went solo and became the main designer for two firms and helped put together a multidisciplinary group called g-wizz offering product design and visualisation to industry and the MOD.

This is a small sample of some of the work from the mid 90’s.

I worked on a whole line of posters and leaflets for local theatres, these two being for the Unity Theatre.

One of our main clients was SHS Pharmaceuticals, the company who developed Lorenzo’s Oil, for whom we did most of their packaging, marketing, exhibition stands etc.. The top images are an example of an orthopaedics brochure I put together for another company.

I worked on a long run of posters and leaflets for Merseyrail and the local museums.

Local stationary company Shawcross & Dickenson came to us for brochures, marketing material and packaging.

Healthstart was always a tricky one. The logo and style guide had been put together by a previous designer and always felt awkward. It wasn’t until the Wirral 5km Run certificate that I started to be able to change things a little.

Quite often we’d be asked to put together complete start up or rebranding packages. Metrolite were a well established company who wanted a brighter image. G-Wizz was a group I helped put together to offer product design and visualisation.

Lemming 3D was my first link to the games industry and on visiting Psygnosis I realised what I wanted to do next.
