Some of my Design Case Studies – and the stories behind them:

For a new HQ, I was commissioned to design the reception area in full which included furniture, clock, signage and product display.
Reception Area Transformation:    For a new headquarters, I was commissioned to design the entire reception area, from furniture to signage, turning it into a welcoming and functional space.

Nurturing Young Minds:    I had the privilege of designing early reader English language storybooks for children, resulting in a series of 15 published books, with 10 still in print, under the imprint “littlepeoplebooks.”

Empowering the Visually Impaired:    My collaboration with Acuity Design resulted in a raised braille lettering system to help blind parents teach their sighted children to read. This project truly touched my heart.

Two of my shopfront designs here. One for an Italian Pizza Take away, the other for a Chinese Herbalist which led to a contact with a fellow artist so we got together and designed his web site and photographed his first product range.
Creating Memorable Shopfronts:    Two of my shopfront designs, one for an Italian Pizza Takeaway and another for a Chinese Herbalist, highlight my versatility in design. The latter led to a successful collaboration on web design and product photography.

Dinosaur characters and one soft toy:

Dinolad (soft toy)
Dinolad: A Jurassic Adventure:  A call from New Zealand author Rose Carr led to the creation of a group of dinosaur characters and a soft toy, Dinolad.

Reviews

From a theme park design for a B.B.C. television show to an interior design for Paulton's Wine and Coffee Bar, I really enjoy using my design skills to communicate at speed. The TV audience got a four second look at our theme park and Paulton's got the funding after just a 30 minute bank meeting. I was surprised to get a call from a new shoe company but loved looking through the latest Italian designs and figuring out a range of design options for slippers you put into the washing machine like any other clothing.
Versatility at Its Best:  From theme park design to interior design for Paulton’s Wine and Coffee Bar, I thrive on using my design skills to communicate effectively and efficiently.
Exploring New Horizons:  I even ventured into the world of shoe design, exploring a range of options for slippers designed to go in the washing machine.
