I studied Graphic Design as a mature student at Epsom School of Art in the 1970s, gaining a Diploma in Communications.

A situation in advertising followed in London, then in a studio in Croydon before a chance meeting in France with a fellow student led me into the cosmetics industry, working for Gala Cosmetics, Mary Quant and Max Factor where I eventually became Senior Designer.

The Design Shop, now based in Devizes, Wiltshire, was set up in 1980 when I left Max Factor. Over 40 years working free-lance has given me a wide spectrum of experience which I aim to bring to all my design work. 

I run the studio using Apple technology (of course) where I can prepare design and artwork for a wide variety of items. Promotional print, advertising, signage, in fact anything that needs electronic artwork. Added to this I have access to a good base of outside suppliers for print and signage preparation.

The latest addition to my skill base is bookbinding, repair and restoration as well as making new books and bindings. Go to the Books on the menu above where a selection of my handmade books can be purchased.
