I work with people in companies of all sizes. Providing design clients can be proud of, digital ideas that get attention and illustration as unique as they are.

It’s my passion to engage people with good design across all media, whether setting up a website that can be easily updated, providing an illustration commission, animation or a cross branded design campaign with online marketing and SEO. JCU is as much about product, as it is service, providing a great design, and client experience. 

With over 20 years industry and design studio experience and a dedication to researching the latest design trends and web technology, it’s not just about creating a look and feel , but solving design problems. 
Design is everywhere. With an increasing number of  screens in everyday  each one seeking attention and engagement . It’s my mission to understand the DNA of excellent design communication and pass that on in the work I create for others. I do it with efficiency and impact, and 99% of my work comes from referrals. My a portfolio has national and international clients. Ranging from music festivals and production companies to environmental awareness organisations. Will you be next?
