The Portas Review

Earlier this year, Prime Minister David Cameron commissioned a report from retail guru and TV presenter Mary Portas on the current state of the British High Street, and thus hopefully gain some insight as to why they are in decline. The report was produced by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, features illustrations by me, and can be viewed here.

Those of you who have been whizzing back and forth over the Irish Sea on Aer Lingus may have noticed some of my work in CARA, their lovely inflight magazine……

Rathmullan House – 50 years in business

Commission / Rathmullan House, County Donegal

Commission / Rathmullan House, County Donegal

TIMELINEfinal 2This October, Rathmullan House, a beautiful country house hotel on the shores of Lough Swilly, marked fifty years of being in business. To celebrate the occasion, the Wheeler family commissioned me to produce a fold out booklet – one side of which shows a landscape of the hotel as it is today, the other showing a history of the hotel and the Wheeler Family from the 1960’s to the present. Probably one of the most complex projects I have ever worked on and I’m really proud of the final result.

Merry Christmas!

Telegraph Maps

I’ve just finished a series of walking maps for a feature in the Sunday Telegraph Magazine which highlight some little known but especially beautiful parts of the British Isles that can be visited over a long weekend….

More street scenes…..

Two different street scenes commissioned last week by Construction Manager Magazine and RCA respectively. If the bottom three images seem a little repetitive, it’s because they show the setting up of a small business in three stages….

SwimTrek!

OK, I know it’s not work related, but I’m just back from a week of swimming around the islands of the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia, and let me tell you it was marvellous! The week was run and organised by Swimtrek, a really cool company based in Brighton….

BP Logo

As I’m sure most of you know, BP’s ruptured oil well is currently spewing approximately the daily equivalent of the Exxon Valdez oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico – and BP have still not managed to cap it. Greenpeace are currently running a BP logo ‘redesign’ competition – here is my entry.
