What’s your background before joining Create8?
It’s an odd one really; when I was 18 I started off running nightclub events, which quickly became very popular. At that point, I was in college studying graphic design. So it gave me a quick insight into how to design for the music industry as I would design all our event artwork / promotional material, as well as other nightclub events as a freelance designer. Three years into events I started working full time as a graphic designer for an Industrial Door company, my day to day role was to produce online campaigns and traditional advertising. Then came the opportunity to start Create8 while working alongside Alex, my business partner now.
How would you explain your style of design to a client?
My personal style of design is quite forward thinking and experimental, but I can also design in a very simplistic but modern style. It all depends on the clients project.
How long have you been in the design industry?
To be honest, I can’t remember not being involved in the design industry, whether that being a freelancer or working within a company. It’s been a massive part of my life.
What makes you stand out from other designers?
I think my forward-thinking style, but also my knowledge of different industries. I always try and go above and beyond for every client, I probably give too much information away at times! But that’s the type of person I am, I like to help a company grow and if my advice can do a little bit of that, then I’m always here to help!
Do you have a preference for projects you work on?
I like forward-thinking projects. Something that gets your creativity flowing, it’s always nice to start fresh with a company, looking at the branding from the beginning you have an input into the way the business looks as a whole. For example, the Mountain Joe’s brand.
