Lettering Artist & Mapmaker

View Bio

An award-winning lettering artist and illustrator, I've been freelancing for over 20 years. I work globally for a wide range of clients from the music, advertising, packaging and publishing industries, creating hand lettered titles, straplines and logos in a variety of styles. I'm well known for my lettering for music and publishing in particular and have been lucky enough to collaborate on some high profile projects, many of which are now considered collectible. As an illustrator I specialise in map and travel illustration, combining my image-making and hand lettering skills to bring information to life. I work in a range of styles, from simple outlines and blocks of colour, when the lettering takes centre stage - to more complex pieces with spot illustrations, insets and decorative elements. Particularly popular with magazines, I'm often asked to provide hand lettered titles and subheadings to complement the map and make the page really pop! I update this page regularly so it's worth checking back for new work. You can also click through to my website for more information on individual projects. If you have a job you'd like to discuss, just send me an email, I'm always happy to talk projects through without obligation.
