As a visual designer I strive to make things that are memorable, well made and considered. I get genuinely excited by the stuff that doesn’t make sense and enjoy trying to work it out. Nonsense and abstraction inspires me to do more interesting work. Stripped back, clean design pushes me to be more ruthless.

I find it easy to do solid work when I’m amongst people who put passion, honesty and craft above politics and ego. I take my work seriously, but not myself. I don’t hate Mondays. I don’t love Fridays.

In the last 15 or so years I’ve worked in Wellington, Sydney and Amsterdam at Resn, Reborn, Random Studio, Special Group, Maud, R/GAMarcel, CHE Proximity, Design.Studio and Howatson+Company. I’m currently living in Papamoa, New Zealand and working at SuperNatural.

Studio Brand & Website
Random Studio

Visual Design
Random Studio was in need of a rebrand. Furthermore, it was agreed that tonally, the work and the way it was being represented, was inconsistent and needed a common thread.

The result of this exercise is a brand that more closely represents the studio’s work attitude. With strong, quirky visuals sitting next to elements of sensible, clean UI, the studio now has a visual language that speaks of its ability to marry their playful approach to grounded UX decisions.
