Right in the midst of the annual protfolio / website update and time for an update! Here are some pieces from a very large job i did for Samsung / Cheil Worldwide Group. These were developed in to giant wall graphics.

Was a great night and so busy... R.A.M.M.E.D! One in one out most of the night. Thanks to all who made it.

Here are some shots courtesy of Rose Stallard at Print Club London, who also did the illustration for the limited edition book jacket for my book Reinventing Screenprinting. This jacket is limited to only 100 copies and available exclusively through Print Club London Gallery, 214 Brick Lane.

My name in silver foil block on the spine, nice!

Been busy conjuring up some 80's/90's Varsity nostalgia for the new logos and idents for UK hip-hop outfit TOO MANY T's. Check out the results...


Almost exactly a year to the day since I was contacted by the good people at RotoVision about writing a book, I received my advance copies in the post!!

On the left is the North American, Australian and New Zealand edition 'Little Book Of Screenprinting'. On the right the European and Worldwide edition 'Reinventing Screenprinting' OUT IN 6 WEEKS!!

"The author at work"...it actual says that....

Continuing my relationship with the good people at ATC Management, I have been commissioned to do the full album campaign for the upcoming 3rd album by The Rifles, titled 'Freedom Run'. Here is the front cover, more pictures and updates to follow on this one. I believe the album is out Sept 19th.


Here are some new prints i've been working on, the 'CM?K' series. The idea behind this is to use the printing process of CMYK, but altering one of the colour channels to produce some great colour variations. I've also halftone bitmapped each colour channel, with halftone lines, not dots. Big thanks to Tom Price of Project Eagle Claw and Ryan Munns for the lovely pics, shot on 35mm. Check out their blogs and great personal work as well.

A selection of these will be available as limited edition screenprints and Giclee prints in the not too distant future so keep the eye peeler handy.


Toby at ATC Management asked me to produce these 3 colour prints for the band The Rifles. A touch of Royal Wedding excitement may have crept in to Scott Mumford's design, it was a pleasure to print. They will be for sale exclusively on their UK acoustic tour, with a show at The Coronet in London on May 6th kicking it all off.


Those of you who know me will be aware I have just spent the last 6 months of my life writing a book... probably lots of you who DO know me might not even know!! Anyway, I am extremely proud of the result, the book is entitled Reinventing Screeenprinting and features 100 of the best practitioners out there in the world of screenprinting. Everyone from The Small Stakes, Sonnenzimmer and Shepard Fairey, to UK favourites Rob Ryan, James Joyce and Tom Rowe.

I huge shout out to Dan and all at Vahalla Studios for their efforts, and Dan's brilliant foreword.

It isn't released until November, and will be published by A&C Black Publishing. However it is available for pre-order NOW! From Amazon, Waterstones and WH Smiths. Shazam!

I was recently commissioned by the British Council to submit some designs for their new campaign to recruit teachers abroad. Here is what I came up with.

I have just completed some large-scale office graphics for Cheil Worldwide / Samsung Group's UK head office in Kings Cross. Photos coming soon, but here is a typographical tiling piece I designed for them I am particularly happy with. Each font is bespoke...and took a while!

Finally re-designed my logo and printed business cards! HAND PRINTED business cards on 315gsm Heritage stock...off cuts, thanks John Purcell!
