Tom in a few words

I’m a freelance creative with 15 years experience, working in print including a wide range of catalogues and brochures, social, email, exhibitions, branding and content production. Everything it takes to make a brand work.

For the last 18 months I’ve been providing Design and Creative Direction on a freelance basis. Clients include Campaign and Design Direction for the clothing company Private White V.C., working on brand identity for a lovely restaurant in Northern Ireland, branding and design consultation for the Hebden Bridge Arts, and graphic design support for Boden.

Prior to this I worked as Senior designer at Sotheby’s working on and leading all aspects of campaigns and designs for the auction house, and in design and content creation for Orient-Express hotels and trains.

I would love to help with you project.
