I'm proud of what I do. But it requires great people to make great things happen.
Here's a few of the people with whom
I've been lucky enough to work and in doing so have come to respect and admire them:
communications, writing and PR
people photographer, videographer
people photographer and sculptor
internal communications guru and thinker
two fine writers with total brand empathy
industrial designers par excellence
And here’s a few with whom I haven't yet worked, but hope that I might one day (although I have worked with them as colleagues in another existence!):
the ultimate copywriters for brand, tone of voice and simple common sense. UK/USA
friend, former colleague and highly experienced service designer
Finally, some people whose work has influenced me over the years…
To the memory of David Goulbourne, 1960–2004, co-founder of Pod Design Consultants Ltd and a major influence on me. Deeply and sadly missed.

Thank you Preston I was very fortunate to attend Preston Polytechnic‘s four year sandwich degree in graphic design when it was in its ascendancy towards being – for a short while – the best design and communications course in the country; that is before the ”powers that be“ (sic) deemed it to be ”too elitist“, and so reassembled and destroyed it. I‘d especially like to thank Ben Casey, Alan Livingston, Michael Cameron, George Hollingworth and John Hodkinson for bringing a fresh perspective (and all the other staff). I'll always be grateful for being lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
